The Future Mapping Company's well-loved British Isles map is a striking piece of wall art and a useful reference point for the home or office
The Future Mapping Company's map of the British Isles is a rarity as it shows the islands in their correct relationship to the mainland, yes, the Channel Islands are down there (practically in France) and Shetland really is half way to Norway.
The British are a nation of map lovers, and they really do have some of the world's most wonderfully ridiculous place names (though we Australians may give them a run for their money), Unthank and Upsettlington being a couple of good examples. The British are a fiercely regional people, proud of their accents and local "delicacies", whelks, eels and pork scratchings to name but a few.
So no matter how you may feel about Stewart Broad, Johnny Wilkinson or Jamie Oliver you will never have seen the British Isles looking so beautiful.
The Future Mapping Company uses the highest quality FSC approved silk-coated paper in its lithographic printing process, which works like a mechanised version of traditional screen printing. A plate is made for each colour and then laid down individually, offering a stunning-quality print, with great definition and colour impact. A sealer is applied to protect the inks and glossUV varnish used to add contract and highlight boundaries.
This fantastic map comes laminated, making it very durable and versatile, you can draw on it and wipe it off afterwards, also you can place our Mark-It-Dots to show where you have been!
Warning: This map is approximately a million times more beautiful in real like than on your computer screen. The luminous colour and glossy metallics have been known to cause palpitations, so have a chair ready when it arrives.
