Map of London (c1600-1623)

The British Library is teaming up with printing service Magnolia Box to provide prints from its immense archives – a collection over 250 years old exceeding 150 million different artifacts representing every age of written civilisation. History-files and art fiends can now adorn their walls with anything from the Magna Carta or Victorian circus posters to classic 1920’s fashion images and almost anything in between. An immense labyrinth of maps are also up for grabs; the collection ranges from off-kilter world maps to hand drawn illustrations of London. Lydia Shellien-Walker

Framed or unframed, canvases, postcards and more are available from bl.uk/prints.
