High-quality hand-printed and hand-colored reproduction of an antique bird's eye view map of London, England, by William Maitland from 1738. With a key at the bottom labeling the buildings and roads of the city. This reproduction was made using a combination of modern technology and traditional methods, wherein an original is scanned, its likeness is digitally etched onto an engraving plate, then the plate is used to print the image in the traditional way, with a printing press. It is then hand colored and mounted onto linen cloth. Consists of twelve sheets that measure approx. 8 x 9 inches each. Overall size is approx. 24.5 x 37 inches to the paper edges, with approx. two inches of linen margin that can be folded under when framing the map.
