I am a 5-star Etsy seller with hundreds of sales and reviews.

Almost all of my maps look amazing at large sizes (2m+) and I can frame them. Contact me to discuss your specific needs. Learn more about how we source maps that you can't buy anywhere else.

Created almost 450 years ago, this is the first ever printed map of Essex published by Christopher Saxton, the father of British cartography. My prints of this map are based on one of the finest examples of one of the best and rarest maps of Essex.

There's an incredible level of detail on this map, with most towns, cities and even some villages in Essex clearly visible.

This old map was hand coloured almost 450 years ago and, as you can see, is still in amazing condition for a map of this age.

Most of the villages and towns are labelled in Late Middle and Early Modern English, which is nice as you should be able to recognise most place names. Take a look and see if you can spot your home town!

This map is wondrously decorative. Take a look at the waters of the North Sea off the coast of Essex, dotted with ships, giant fish, and other beasties.

This map will be completely sharp at all sizes. The original size of this map was close to 16x20 inches (40x50cm), but it looks fantastic at all sizes. I can print it at sizes up to 70 inches (180cm) wide - at that size it would make the perfect statement piece for a pub, bar, hotel, office or other hosting space.

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, or to frame one of the larger maps. We use super-clear perspex in our frames - it's less reflective than glass and better for transport.

My museum-quality maps are made on thick and durable matte paper. Add a wonderful accent to your room and office with these vintage map prints that are sure to brighten any environment.
