Winner :: Highly Commended


Global Mapping
The World

This antique looking map was published in January 2013. Given the antique feel by including features you'd expect to see on an antique globe. This large version was published following the success of the Medium Antique Map published in 2012.
Global Mapping's own Mary Spence (awarded an MBE for services to cartographic design), is behind this map dropping in a more detailed enlargement of Central Europe plus insets of the two polar regions. The Analemma (normally found on old globes to depict which day of the year the sun is directly overhead and how sun time compares to clock time) is featured on the map along with descriptive text. The antique feel of the map is due to the muted colours and hill shading cleverly balanced by Mary.

Judges Comments:
Judges found the entry to encompass what should be seen in good cartography, with its ‘Old Map’ feel, it is easy on the eye and unique in its presentation.
