Maps!

I love maps from the Middle Ages, and I'm going to try to post a whole bunch of these on this thread. Here are a few cool ones I just found done by Sebastian Munster in 1540-1560

That is awesome. I love how Sicily is dramatically oversized. That cartographer knew who his patron was, for sure. :) I wish I could read the labels on the map. I'm assuming the large island blob near the top left is supposed to be England.
