Default Insanely good maps site

I recently found this insanely good maps site:

https://www.davidrumsey.com/

Thousands and thousands of maps, the majority of which can be exported at VERY high resolution. (12k pixels across)

So far I have found maps of Fairyland, Soviet Moon Maps, Satellite posters from when I was a child, beautiful NASA charts profiling Apollo missions, elegant constellation charts hundreds of year old, (including in a cubic projection!), and a mass of conventional maps too.

Highly recommended!
Nick

Funny, I just found this site last week. I was doing a deep dive researching hand drawn cartography and maps.
