Intro
Established in 1984, the Unique Maps Co. sources the world's finest and rarest old maps from libraries and private collections around the world. I restore the maps in my workshop and then reproduce, customise and frame them to suit my customers' needs. I guarantee that you cannot find higher quality maps anywhere else.
About this map
This old, full colour and exceedingly rare map shows the ancient county of Worcestershire in 1611. It was created by John Speed and engraved by Jodocus Hondius, and originally published in Speed's "The Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine".
This map looks great at all sizes, from 12x16 inches (30x40cm), to 16x20 inches (40x50cm), 18x24 inches (45x60cm) and beyond. I can print it at large sizes all the way up to 50 inches wide (125cm). Please get in touch if you're looking for larger, customised or different framing options.
The model in the listing images is holding the 24x18 inch (60x45cm) version of this map.
I also have this same map in its original monochrome copperplate form. Depending on your room’s aesthetic/decor, you might prefer this version: https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/1225968321/old-map-of-worcestershire-1611-by-john
Many of the towns, villages and cities in Worcestershire are already visible in this map, including Kidderminster, Worcester, Malvern, Droitwich and more.
Take a look at the detailed images and try to spot your hometown! Feel free to message me if you want to confirm if a certain Worcestershire town or village is on this map.
This would make a wonderful birthday or Christmas gift for someone from Worcestershire or who has Worcs in their heart.
You can order the map itself, or you can order a framed version. The frame is a nice, simple black wood frame that really makes the map pop out when on a wall. Please get in touch if you'd like a different frame colour or material. I use super-clear acrylic (perspex/acrylite) in my frames - it's less reflective than glass and better for transport. If you're looking for a framed map that isn't in stock, please get in touch and we can discuss your needs.
My museum-quality maps are printed on acid free archival paper with Epson ultrachrome giclée inks.
CANVAS MAP INFO
Some of my maps are available as canvas prints. These are 'box canvases' - the map is printed on canvas, and then stretched over a wooden frame. They come with brackets on the back and are 'ready to hang'.
My maps look fantastic when printed on canvas, but please note that canvas reduces the sharpness of my maps. So, for example, a small label might be legible on paper, but too small to read on a canvas map.
Generally, most of my maps should be fully legible at 24x36 inches (60x90cm). But please get in touch if you want me to check if a specific label will be legible.
