This old color map of the British Isles, by cartographer Abraham Ortelius, is an unusual horizontal format, with West at the top. This map was originally printed in 1619 as "Britannicarum Insularum Typus." My fine art reproduction is printed in archival inks on Epson ultra-premium luster paper for lasting beauty.
Map art prints are available in five different sizes: 8 x 10 inches, A4 (8.3 x 11.7 inches), 11 x 14 inches, A3 (11.7 x 16.5 inches), and 16 x 20 inches. They are shipped flat in a rigid mailer. Your art print arrives ready to frame and hang on your wall!
Larger prints offer better legibility of the map labels and text than smaller prints. In addition, the different length-to-width ratios of the various sizes of prints offered here result in slightly different crops of the artwork: An A3 print will look slightly different than a 16 x 20 inch print.
This is a reproduction of a map that is hundreds of years old, and the image shows discoloration, foxing, and occasionally other damage to the original paper. The borders of the map may not be perfectly rectangular or parallel with each other. These add to the charm and antique appearance of your print.
