It is about this time of year that I get asked if I want anything in particular for Christmas. So for others in the same position, or if you are searching for a gift for a map obsessed loved one, here is my ultimate Christmas wish list. Most of these items are things I have asked for in the past, or purchased myself, so I know they are must haves for map lovers!
Starting with the last job first, this Map wrapping paper and Subway map packing tape offer the perfect way of presenting your gifts. It is worth noting, the paper is really nice quality and comes in loads of different variations.
I was given these Map Fridge Magnets last year and they make for a nice stocking filler.
This Population Lines print is one I have produced showing world population density. Each A2 print is produced with vegetable-based inks on 170 gsm 100% recycled Cyclus Offset paper. This is slightly off-white and does a great job of producing crisp lines and giving the print a quality feel. I have signed and numbered each print for this first print run.

This Typographic Tube map is produced for a range of cities, converting their transportation maps into beautiful text.

A love of maps should be instilled from an early age and this Animal Map is a great way to do it. It comes in a range of formats.
