Almost all of my maps look amazing at large sizes (2m+) and can be framed. Contact me to discuss your specific needs.

This is a rather unusual map of the geological (rock) and palaeontological (fossil) regions of the entire British Isles, including England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland. What's even more unusual is that it was created a long time ago in 1854, engraved by A.K. Johnston from the notes and recordings of Edward Forbes.

It is incredibly rare to have a full colour, highly detailed map of the United Kingdom (and the British Isles) from the 1850s. The detail is really quite astonishing.

This map was originally disected into 12 regions, mounted on linen, and then folded up into a black leather book.

The ideal size for this map is 24x36 inches, but you can also order a 12x18 version (some of the smallest labels may be hard to read at that size). I can also print extra large versions of this map up to 84 inches (215cm) tall by 56 inches (142cm) wide, if you have a suitably large space for it (a hotel, office, or very large empty wall space at home). It's a stunning map at larger sizes.

You can buy just the map, or you can buy a framed version. The framed version has a nice, simple black frame that will make the map pop out nicely on your wall. Please get in touch if you'd like a framed version of one of the larger maps.

This is a lovely, highly detailed map that would look great on any wall - and it would make a lovely gift, too. A full colour map like this, particularly of this subject matter, is unusual from the 1850s.

We also have this same map, but only showing Scotland, if that's more your kind of thing.
