This masterpiece by Bernard Sleigh, published in 1918 at the height of the Arts & Crafts movement, is the "Ancient Mappe of Fairyland".
The map is not a real map, of course. This map displays a fantastical fantasy land, crammed full of European fairy tales and and Greek mythology.
There's an awful lot going on in this map. I recommend you zoom into the detailed images to check it out. But to give you some idea... you can visit King Arthur's Tomb, or talk to Hercules. There's Cinderella's castle, Avalon, and Peter Pan's house. Valhalla and Asgard are in the distance. Fairies, watersprites and nixies adorn the map. All in all, an amazing piece of art.
Because this map is an unusual size - it's extremely wide! - it would make a fantastic statement piece above a sofa, table, mantelpiece or staircase. Please note that the smaller (18, 24 and 36 inch) maps have white edges that can be easily snipped off (or they may help you with framing). The larger sizes, and all the framed maps, are all printed and pre-cut perfectly to size.
The text is definitely very small on this map if you buy one of the smaller sizes. I recommend going for the 36in (91cm) wide map if you have space for it, or larger if possible.
I can create beautiful, large prints of this map up to 270 inches (680cm, 22ft) wide. Please get in touch if you're looking for larger, customised or different framing options.
This would make a wonderful birthday, Christmas, work leaving or housewarming gift for someone interested in fairies, or fantasy... or just very attractive artwork, really.
This map is available as a giclée print on acid free archival matte paper, or you can buy it framed. The frame is a nice, simple black frame that suits most aesthetics. Please get in touch if you'd like a different frame colour or material. My frames are glazed with super-clear museum-grade acrylic (perspex/acrylite), which is significantly less reflective than glass, safer, and will always arrive in perfect condition.
If you are not happy with your unique map for any reason, contact me for a no-quibble refund.
I am very confident you will like your old map. I have been doing this since 1984 and I'm a 5-star Etsy seller with 1000s of sales and reviews.
This is the cheapest place to buy my maps online.
I use a unique process to restore my maps that is massively time consuming and labour intensive. Hunting down the original maps can take months. I use state of the art and eye-wateringly expensive technology to scan and restore the maps. As a result, I guarantee my maps are a cut above the rest - that's why I can offer a no-quibble refund.
Almost all of my maps look amazing at large sizes (200cm, 6.5ft+) and I can frame and deliver them to you as well, via special oversized courier. Contact me to discuss your specific needs.
