the 'county' series

 

i have launched this website with a map of the cotswolds along with county maps of gloucestershireoxfordshire. worcestershire is now available and 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

 

map sizes

 

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 ​

so why choose canvas

firstly let me assure you there is no loss in image quality. all the little details on the map come across loud and clear.

with no glazing, like any painting on canvas, there is no barrier, reflection or glare, just the colours and clarity of the map as it was meant to be.

testimonials

 

cassandra & adrian came across the cartographic arts at the cheltenham christmas market. adrian soon received a map for his birthday in early 2020

"our map of the cotswolds is beautiful, full of detail like a work of art, but it also looks good when you stand back from it. we've put it up by our front door so people can see it when they arrive or leave. It soon becomes a talking point"
