Almost all of my maps look amazing at large sizes (2m+) and I can frame them. Contact me to discuss your specific needs.
This large map, by W. Faden in 1790, is one of the greatest historic maps of London. Unusual for maps of its time, this one also includes all of the suburbs of London up to 25 miles around.
Over 200 years ago London looked very different indeed. In fact, London is hardly there at all! There's the City of Westminster and the City of London... and a bunch of villages dotted around them. The next 100 years would see London (and the British Empire) dramatically expand.
There's an incredible amount of detail in this map - and at 18x24 inches, you'll be able to read all of the smallest village names!
This is one of the greatest maps of London and its environs ever printed. Everything from Reigate and Godstone in the south, to Leatherhead in the southwest, to Enfield in the north and Billericay in the west. And just about all of the London boroughs and villages are here too, from Peckham to Bethnal Green to Deptford to Hackney.
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 the free worldwide shipping option, you can usually expect to receive your map around 10 days after you order. It may be faster or slower, depending on the impact of coronavirus in your country.
If you select Express Delivery at checkout your order will be sent by courier (Fedex, DHL, UPS, Parcelforce) and will usually arrive in 2-3 days.
Customers in the US, Australia and Canada: Your map will be sent from a printer or framer in your country, which means you'll get your map sooner, you won't pay import duties, and we'll put less CO2 into the atmosphere. I have worked with some great printers and framers around the world for years - so don't worry, your map will still look amazing!
My maps are extremely high quality reproductions of original maps.
I source original, extremely 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 thick matte (not glossy) paper that feels high quality. In technical terms the paper weight/thickness is 10mil/190gsm. It's perfect for framing.
Please contact me if you're looking for a print on canvas or cotton rag.

We really like the item, but were disappointed that it was delivered on 7 January, when we initially thought we had ordered in time for Christmas, but were told that we had just missed the cut off point!
I am really pleased with this lovely map! It’s definitely worth ordering in a larger size, I went for 30x40. Sebastian is really helpful, I wanted to change the size slightly and he was very accommodating. The map arrived quickly. I have now ordered an old map of Nottinghamshire!
Absolutely love the print. Looks even better in real life. Bought the largest size and wasn’t disappointed. Sebastian was also very helpful and responsive in arranging delivery and answering questions.
