Handmade to order
These "Dated Events" maps were a series of maps created by Toronto-based artist Stanley Turner. They would be updated periodically with the latest information from the War. The maps were licensed and published by various publishers and companies around the world.
As you can probably imagine, if you didn't catch an update on the radio or newspaper, it was fairly hard to keep up with World War 2 from home. So maps like these were a great way of staying up to date.
The map is covered in fascinating bits of info - zoom into the listing images and read a few of them! The legend in the bottom right corner will certainly help with decoding it, and which notes pertain to the Allies and which to the Nazis, Italians and Japanese.
This map is an unusual size - it's extremely wide - and would make a fantastic statement piece above a sofa, table, mantelpiece or staircase. The three smaller sizes (18x9, 24x11 and 36x17 inches) all come with white edges that can be easily snipped off (or they will help you with framing!). The larger sizes, and all framed maps, are all printed and pre-cut perfectly to size and look just like the listing images.
It looks magnificent at every size and you'll always be able to read the writing on the map. I can print very large versions of this map up to 4 meters (160 inches) wide. Get in touch if you're looking for very large maps, or if you want me to check if your town/city is visible on this map.
This would make a wonderful birthday or Christmas gift for someone interested in World War 2, or perhaps as an educational aid!
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.
This is the cheapest place to buy my maps online.
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.
