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 rare, ancient map of London that was created by Joannes de Ram of Amsterdam in 1690. This map is available in a few different sizes, starting at 16x20 inches (40x50cm). I can print and frame it at sizes up to 40x50 inches (100x125cm) - and it looks truly amazing at large sizes, let me tell you!

Back in the 1600s maps often had Latin names. This one was originally published as Londini Angliæ regni metropolis novissima & accuratissima - roughly translated as the 'new and accurate map of London, capital of the realm'.

As you can see, back in 1690 London was mostly just the City of London and Holborn. Westminster and Southwark were starting to develop, but everything else is just fields and marshes (hello Lambeth!)

The Inns (Lincoln Inn, Grays Inn) are clearly visible on this map, as is St James' Park, St Paul's Cathedral, Spitle fields - and of course, Shore ditch church!

Across the bottom of the map is a beautiful landscape of the city, looking north from the south side of the Thames - possibly over London Bridge.

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.
