Your support saves maps
When you make a purchase from the SVDB.shop you are not only helping Sebastiaan design new maps and create new videos for the YouTube channel; you are also supporting the map collection.
A growing collection of well over 200 maps and a number of atlases from the 19th century to today. Modern maps tell a story of technological advances and the major political upheaval we have seen the past 200 years. It is history worth saving.
If you're less interested in buying a map and want to support Sebastiaan's work on a more regular basis, you can also consider donating a small amount each month by becoming a patron. Patrons get exclusive behind-the-scene videos, photos and other updates. As well as a say in new maps and video topics.
Directly support an artist
By purchasing from the SVDB.shop you directly help me pay my bills, buy food for my family and keep a roof over our heads.
Making maps is time consuming, as is making YouTube videos at a certain quality standard. I love doing it after years of working for companies where the results are only seen be a few. I much rather work for you.
Your support - even the gesture alone - helps me going, if you can spare it. There are various ways of supporting my work, aside from purchasing a map from the store
