Handmade to order
There's a huge amount of detail on this map - most of the USA's rivers are shown, as are every city and some smaller towns as well. Across the bottom of the map is a cross-section of the Appalachian range, from New Jersey's Egg Harbour to Lake Ontario by the Niagara river.
Of course, the main feature of the map is that it shows you all of the various geological deposits and their ages, from quaternary to Mesozoic to metamorphic, along with their 'European equivalents'.
This map looks great at all sizes: 12x16 inches (30x40cm), 16x20 inches (40x50cm) and 18x24 inches (45x60cm), but it looks even better when printed large. I can create beautiful, large prints of this map up to 70 inches (180cm) wide. Please get in touch if you're looking for larger, customised or different framing options.
The model in the listing images is holding the 20x16 inch (50x40cm) version of this map.
I have a couple of similar maps published AK Johnston, of the geology and palaeontology (fossils) of Scotland and the British Isles.
This would make a wonderful birthday or Christmas gift for someone from the US, or who has an interest in geology.
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. Please get in touch if you'd like a different frame. We use super-clear acrylic (perspex/acrylite) in our frames - it's less reflective than glass and better for transport.
If you are not happy with your unique map for any reason, contact me for a no-quibble refund.
I am very confident you will like your old map. I have been doing this since 1984 and I'm a 5-star Etsy seller with 1000s of sales and reviews.

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.
