Handmade to order
The map shows all the "principal products" that are produced or manufactured by each of the Commonwealth Nations - such as machinery and sugar in Australia, or coffee and tobacco in east Africa.
A second key also describes the different types of government/rule in each country. For example, Canada and Australia were both self-governing at this point, but many African and Asian states were still partially under the rule of the UK.
This map looks great at all sizes: 12x18 inches (31x46cm), 15x24 inches (38x61cm) and 24x36 inches (61x91.5cm), but it looks even better when printed large.
I can create beautiful, large prints of this map up to 170 inches (440cm). Please get in touch if you're looking for larger, customised or different framing options.
The model in the listing images is holding the 24x36 inches (61x91.5cm) version of this map.
Please note that the 24x15 inch map has white edges that may help with framing, or you can snip them off easily if needed. All other maps, and all framed maps, are just like the listing images.
Take a look at the detailed images and try to spot your home country! Feel free to message me if you want to confirm if a certain place is on this map.
This would make a wonderful birthday, housewarming or Christmas gift for someone from one of the countries shown, or perhaps someone interested in the history of the British Commonwealth.
This map is available as a giclée print on acid free archival matte paper, or you can buy it framed. The frame is a nice, simple black frame that suits most aesthetics. Please get in touch if you'd like a different frame colour or material. My frames are glazed with super-clear museum-grade acrylic (perspex/acrylite), which is significantly less reflective than glass, safer, and will always arrive in perfect condition.
If you are not happy with your unique map for any reason, contact me for a no-quibble refund.

I use a unique process to restore my maps that is massively time consuming and labour intensive. Hunting down the original maps can take months. I use state of the art and eye-wateringly expensive technology to scan and restore the maps. As a result, I guarantee my maps are a cut above the rest - that's why I can offer a no-quibble refund.
Almost all of my maps look amazing at large sizes (200cm, 6.5ft+) and I can frame and deliver them to you as well, via special oversized courier. Contact me to discuss your specific needs.
