National Geographic's map of Africa is as attractive as it is functional. The entire continent is rendered in the Classic style with colourful, clearly defined international borders, shaded relief, and easy-to-read fonts. Place names, bodies of water, airports, major highways and roads, as well as cartographic patterns used to depict sand, lava fields, swamps, dry salt lakes, intermittent lakes, salt deserts, and areas below sea level are shown as well. This map also includes an informative inset on climate and terrain with a topographic map of the continent and individual insets of the 10 island nations surrounding Africa.
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 in the wall. The hang rails come lacquered in a natural timber colour.
Note: Please allow 10 working days to deliver hang railed maps as they need to be attached by our framer.
