Our British Isles map is a striking piece of wall art and useful reference point for the home or office.
Wherever we live in Britain we are a nation of map lovers. If no longer because we're all off sailing the seven seas, then maybe because we have the world's most wonderfully ridiculous place names. (Unthank and Upsettlington being a couple of our favourites.) Or perhaps it's because we're fiercely regional, proud of our accents and local delicacies, even if they are whelks, Balti, eels or pork scratchings. We just love to point to the place we call home.
This map is a rarity as it shows the islands in their correct relationships to the mainland. Yes, the Channel Islands are down there (practically in France) and Shetland really is half way to Norway. Finally, a British Isles map with as much sea as a sea-faring nation deserves! (And it's our signature metallic bathymetric sea to boot.)
Whatever your attitude to the North-South divide, Scottish independence or the controversial boundaries of the Black Country, you will never have seen our Isles looking so beautiful.
We print our maps on to the highest quality FSC approved silk-coated paper using the lithographic printing process. (This works like a mechanised version of traditional screen printing.) A plate is made for each colour and then laid down individually, creating a stunning print with maximum definition and impact. A sealer is applied to protect the inks and gloss UV varnish used to add contrast and highlight boundaries.
