Unique Maps Co. Exclusive
  • Handmade in the UK

    Your map will be handmade in the UK

    The Unique Maps Co. is a UK-based company that prints, frames, personalises and delivers maps all around the world.

    If the delivery address is in the UK, your map will be printed and framed here.

    If the delivery address is outside the UK, I will print and frame the map outside of the UK. I have local production facilities in 22 countries.

    This is great for gifting. For example, you can buy a map for someone in Singapore, and I'll make and deliver the map locally in Singapore with no tax or duty to be paid by the recipient.

    Sustainability & Tree Planting

    Here at The Unique Maps Co., we have an unusually high affinity for paper. After all, without paper, there can be no maps!

    That's why all of our paper, frames and packaging are from FSC certified sources.

    But we don't stop there. We've partnered with Treeapp to plant trees around the world.

    If you spend £50 or more, we'll plant a tree in your name.

John Rocque, the preeminent map maker of the 18th century, published this map in 1746. The map shows Westminster, Southwark, the City of London, and roughly 10 miles around.

Today we would call these areas the suburbs of London - but back then, these parts of Middlesex, Surrey, Kent and Essex were mostly just villages and fields.

This map was published to accompany Rocque's much more detailed map of central London.

Some of the clearly visible towns, villages and London suburbs in this map are: Wimbledon, Hampstead, Highgate, Vauxhall, Richmond, Teddington, Petersham, Twickenham, Hampton Court Palace, Surbiton, Putney, Wandsworth, Clapham, Brixton, Camberwell, Peckham, Kennington, New Cross, Deptford, Greenwich, Norwood, Dulwich, Woolwich, Rotherhithe, Southwark, Blackwall, Mile End, Bethnal Green, Stepney, Hoxton, Islington, Hackney, Dalston, Kingsland, Homerton, Clapton, Tottenham, Walthamstow, Stratford, Westham, Eastham, Acton, Hounslow... and many more!

36x24 inches (90x60cm) is the smallest version of this map that I sell - any smaller and you won't be able to read all the place names.

The model in the listing images is holding the 36x24 inch (90x60cm) version of this map.

The fifth listing image shows an example of my map personalisation service.

This map is definitely best experienced large. It looks amazing at 1.5 meters (60in, 5ft) wide and would make for a stunning, large map for an office, hotel, living room or other big space.

Please get in touch if you'd like a different size, or if you'd like the map customised to fit a specific space. I can make the map taller or wider, or zoom in on a specific part of the map.

These large maps would be perfect for hotels, offices, pubs, bars or other hospitality spaces - but if you have a large space at home, then they would look amazing there as well!

I have a number of other beautiful, large maps of London if this one doesn't quite suit your decor.

My standard frame is a gallery style black ash hardwood frame. It is simple and quite modern looking. My standard frame is around 20mm (0.8in) wide.

I use super-clear acrylic (perspex/acrylite) for the frame glass. It's lighter and safer than glass - and it looks better, as the reflectivity is lower.

Six standard frame colours are available for free (black, dark brown, dark grey, oak, white and antique gold). Custom framing and mounting/matting is available if you're looking for something else.

Most maps are also available as a framed canvas. The map is printed on matte (not shiny) canvas, stretched over a box frame, and then 'floated' within a simple wood frame. The end result is quite beautiful, and there's no glazing in front of your map.

All frames are provided "ready to hang", with either a string or brackets on the back. Very large frames will have heavy duty hanging plates and/or a mounting baton. If you have any questions, please get in touch.

See some examples of my framed maps and framed canvas maps.

Alternatively, I can also supply old maps on canvas, foam board, cotton rag and other materials.

If you want to frame your map yourself, please read my map size guide first.

For most orders, delivery time is about 3 working days. Personalised and custom made maps take longer, as I have to do the personalisation and send it to you for approval, which usually takes a day or two.

Please note that for larger framed orders (over 40in/100cm), and some other framed sizes, the delivery time will be closer to 7-10 days.

If you need your order to arrive by a certain date, please contact me before you order so that we can find the best way of making sure you get your order in time.

I print and frame maps in 22 countries around the world. This means your map will be made locally, which cuts down on delivery time and reduces the chance of your map being damaged during delivery. There won't be any extra taxes or duties to pay, and we'll put less CO2 into the air.

All of my maps are well packaged and sent in a rugged tube if unframed, or surrounded by foam if framed.

I try to send out all maps within 1 or 2 days of receiving your order, though some products (like face masks or mugs) can take longer to make.

If you select Express Delivery at checkout your order we will prioritise your order and send it out by 1-day courier (Fedex, DHL, UPS, Parcelforce).

We can sometimes do next-day delivery if you order before 10am. But usually it's best to contact me first before you order.

My maps are extremely high quality reproductions of original maps.

I source original, rare maps from libraries, auction houses and private collections around the world, restore them at my London workshop, and then use specialist giclée inks and printers to create beautiful maps that look even better than the original.

My maps are printed on acid-free archival matte (not glossy) paper that feels very high quality and almost like card. In technical terms the paper weight/thickness is 10mil/200gsm. It's perfect for framing.

I print with Epson ultrachrome giclée UV fade resistant pigment inks - some of the best inks you can find.

I can also make maps on canvas, cotton rag and other exotic materials.

Map personalisation

If you're looking for the perfect anniversary or housewarming gift, I can personalise your map to make it truly unique. For example, I can add a short message, or highlight an important location, or add your family's coat of arms.

The options are almost infinite. Please see my map personalisation page for some wonderful examples of what's possible.

To order a personalised map, select "personalise your map" before adding it to your basket.

Get in touch if you're looking for more complex customisations and personalisations.

Map ageing

I have been asked hundreds of times over the years by customers if they could buy a map that looks even older.

Well, now you can, by selecting Aged before you add a map to your basket.

All the product photos you see on this page show the map in its Original form. This is what the map looks like today.

If you select Aged, I will age your map by hand, using a special and unique process developed through years of studying old maps, talking to researchers to understand the chemistry of aging paper, and of course... lots of practice!

If you're unsure, stick to the Original colour of the map. If you want something a bit darker and older looking, go for Aged.

See some amazing examples of Aged maps.

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. I'm a 5-star Etsy seller. I have sold tens of thousands of maps and have over 4,000 real 5-star 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.
