What is it about?
Floris Balthasars made in 1602 a news map about the siege of Grave (1602), an event part of the Dutch Revolt. In 1610, the map was re-issued as a book illustration for a historical book about the Revolt. This article shows how the map was transformed into a map with a different narrative impact, reframing the collective memory of the events.
