Handmade to order
This lovely map of Oxford by Spencer Hoffman, dating from 1929, shows you that the city has hardly changed at all in the last 90 years (or indeed in the last 200 years!)
The natural size for this map is 16x20 inches (40x50cm), but it looks great at sizes all the way up to 70 inches (178cm) wide. The unframed 24x30 inch map has white edges that can easily be snipped off (or they may help you with framing!) All other map sizes, and all framed maps, look exactly like the listing images.
The model in the listing images is holding the 20x16 inch (50x40cm) version of this map.
The legends on the left and right help you identify the various Oxford colleges, churches, landmarks and other university buildings. Take a close look and you can spot Pembroke, Christchurch, Corpus Christi, Magdalen, Queen's, Jesus, Trinity, Keble and many other colleges.
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 larger framed map. 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.
