Almost all of my maps look amazing at large sizes (2m+) and I can frame them. Contact me to discuss your specific needs.
Create and own a customised, unique historic map of the Map of London Poverty, created by Charles Booth in 1898-99. You can order a square, portrait, or landscape map.
Charles Booth's Map of London Poverty is one of the finest old maps ever created of London. He assessed the poverty level (or not) of almost every street in central London, creating some fascinating maps.
Look through the various maps and then let me know what custom map you would like. We can zoom in on a specific area, or an area that spans a few different maps. We can really make whatever custom map you like!
We'll be in touch after you order to find out exactly what you want on your custom map. We'll then send you a draft to make sure it's what you're looking for.
The original maps are high enough resolution that we can zoom in on a pretty small area (but get in touch if you want to find out more!)
You can order the map itself, or you can order a framed version. The frame is a nice, simple black frame that really makes our maps pop out when on a wall.
All of my maps are well packaged and sent in a rugged tube if unframed, or surrounded by foam if framed.
I try to send out all maps within 1 or 2 days of receiving your order, though some products (like face masks or mugs) can take longer to make.
If you select the free worldwide shipping option, you can usually expect to receive your map around 10 days after you order. It may be faster or slower, depending on the impact of coronavirus in your country.
If you select Express Delivery at checkout your order will be sent by courier (Fedex, DHL, UPS, Parcelforce) and will usually arrive in 2-3 days.
Customers in the US, Australia and Canada: Your map will be sent from a printer or framer in your country, which means you'll get your map sooner, you won't pay import duties, and we'll put less CO2 into the atmosphere. I have worked with some great printers and framers around the world for years - so don't worry, your map will still look amazing!
My maps are extremely high quality reproductions of original maps.
I source original, extremely rare maps from libraries, auction houses and private collections around the world, restore them at my London workshop, and then use specialist giclée inks and printers to create beautiful maps that look even better than the original.
My maps are printed on thick matte (not glossy) paper that feels high quality. In technical terms the paper weight/thickness is 10mil/190gsm. It's perfect for framing.
Please contact me if you're looking for a print on canvas or cotton rag.
