the 'county' series
i have launched this website with a map of the cotswolds along with county maps of gloucestershire & oxfordshire. cornwall will be available shortly, with more to follow
these vintage style maps are digitally rendered designs, inspired by historical & antique map prints from the 19th and early 20th centuries
all present day civil parish, district and county borders, place names, rivers, major walking routes, complete road & rail networks are displayed. The shaded relief of the hills meandering across the english landscape; coloured interior shading for the counties or districts together with the vignetted shading of the peripheral border and choice of font throughout are all inspired by examples of european antique cartographic styles
the maps are available in 2 sizes
70 cm x 100 cm (framed - 76.5 cm x 106.5 cm). original design size.
A1 - 59.4 cm x 84.1 cm (framed - 65.9 cm x 90.6 cm). The content becomes slightly more congested as shrunk, in particular text labels. Everything has been readjusted but the occasional label had to be removed.
"maps you get lost in examining close up, while they also pack a punch from across the room"
"looks amazing anywhere in the house"
the 'london' series
i have developed an different style of map focusing on the boroughs of london. to launch the london series the boroughs of hammersmith & fulham and the city of westminster are now available to purchase. kensington & chelsea is almost complete and many more will follow
the aim is to complete all 32 london boroughs and develop a large scale map of greater london. please stay in contact if you want to know more about this
the distinct design of the london series does share some common ideas from the county series but has evolved to suit the size of the area in question and the density of detail associated with an urban area
the london series maps are available in a variety of colours: orange, blue, pink, green & yellow
all my maps come with researched "sites of significant historical & cultural interest" which is packed full of interesting information
the london series is a smaller size of map
fulham & hammersmith is an A2 size portrait print (42 cm x 59.4 cm )
city of westminster is slightly larger poster size landscape print (70 cm x 50 cm)
