Almost all of my maps look amazing at large sizes (2m+) and I can frame them. Contact me to discuss your specific needs.
This rather unique map is a propaganda map, published in London in 1916, showing what the world could look like if Germany had its way and conquered a big chunk of the world.
In the top right corner are 36 statements made by 'leaders of German thought' that, at least according to the creators of this propaganda, outline all the countries and territories that the Germans thought belonged to them.
The base map itself is a modern map by Edward Stanford and shows lots of countries that had different colonial names back in 1916, such as 'Belgian Congo' and 'Anglo-Egyptian Sudan'.
Established in 1984, The Unique Maps Co. sources rare original maps from around the world, and then lovingly restores them at a workshop in London. I guarantee that you cannot buy prints of these old maps, at this high quality, anywhere else.
This map looks great at all sizes, from 12x16 inches (30x40cm) up to 24x36 inches (60x90cm) and beyond. I can print and frame this map at sizes up to 250cm wide - please get in touch if you'd like a larger size, or to discuss framing options and prices.
This world map would make a perfect gift for someone who loves German history, is a World War 1 buff, or it would look great as wall art on your own walls!
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 perspex in our frames - it's less reflective than glass and better for transport.
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.
