Purchasing digital copies (high resolution)
Printing the black and white maps
For printing the black and white maps I recommend putting the files on a USB-stick and going to a print or copy shop.
The large black and white map should be printed in B1-format (1000 by 700 mm) on paper. Most copy shops have those large printers and a b/w print shouldn’t be too expensive. Try to use the thickest paper possible if you intent to color it in (at least 120 g/square meter).
Printing the color map
So far, I had some posters printed via an online printing company. I just uploaded the color map and had it printed in B1 (1000 by 700 mm), 4/0-color print (also referred to as CMYK), 135g paper. The printing firm also offered a high gloss varnish version which I accepted – with brilliant results. I had all my maps printed that way and they look very good. I can’t say anything about the prices though, because they might differ dramatically.
If you want to get it printed in a copy shop (again in B1 format), insist on photo quality. If you just have a regular print made, the colors could look dull after a while.
I’m thankful for feedback you might have on that topic as well.
This video gives an impression of the creation process of this map.
I included a lot of the people from the A Song of Ice and Fire fan communities as models for the people on the map. Thirty-three people modeled for the Iron Islands map. On the map itself there are bigger or smaller depictions of 67 people all in all.
To learn more about the depicted persons, got to the history and mythology section.
