This copy of the iconic Norman Tindale map shows the distribution of the Aboriginal tribes of Australia published in 1940. It even includes some of his notes in pencil along the bottom of the map.

Norman Tindale found fame for his work in mapping the different tribal groupings of Indigenous Australians. The orthodoxy of his time was that Aboriginal people were completely nomadic, but his studies posited significantly more precise tribal boundaries. While later research has evolved from this concept, it was nevertheless a significant contribution to the understanding of the topic at the time. 

The map can come either printed on heavyweight 160 gsm paper or laminated. The paper version is perfect for framing under glass, and the laminated version is exceptionally hard-wearing as we use a true encapsulation of two pieces of 80-micron gloss laminate.

Alternatively, we can supply this map on 395 gsm HP Professional Matte Canvas using pigment-based inks - making the map highly durable and fade-resistant. The exceptional clarity of printing makes this map a stunning addition to any room, and its high quality means that it will provide years of enjoyment.

The easiest way to hang your canvas map is by having wooden hang rollers attached top and bottom with a hanging cord on the top roller, so all you have to do is put a hook on the wall. The hang rails come lacquered in a natural timber colour.

Note: Please allow ten working days to deliver hang-railed maps as they need to be attached by our framer.
