I love maps, well in fact I’d probably go so far as to say I’m a little obsessed with them. I always wanted an office full of old maps and whilst I’m still not there yet I am adding to my collection on a fairly regular basis. So when I was asked if I’d like to review the Future Mapping Company Magnetic Map I jumped at the chance.
It was the Classic world map that I settled upon after spending quite some time studying the website.
I could have chosen most of them, I very nearly settled on one of the future maps which show an alternative map perspective. I love these maps that change the way you see the world with more accurate representation of country size. I’d also love to paper a whole wall with their wallpaper too.
But I settled on the classic world map because it is a contemporary tribute to the familiar schoolroom map and is the perfect map for all ages, suiting both me and the kids. It’s bright and it’s colourful giving you the impression of a simply fun map but the level of detail is what sets it apart from many maps of a similar type.
There are compass references, political borders, major peaks, sea depth layers and even plate tectonic boundaries.
You can also turn all of their maps into a noticeboard, plot your next trip or mark points of interest with their magnetic maps.
All of the maps can be ordered with a magnetic finish like we have. The paper print is encapsulated in plastic then hand-mounted onto flexible sheet metal.
The supplied magnetic strips can be used to fix the map to the wall with ease, or you can add a frame or hanging rails to your order on the product page. A free magnet pack is also included with every magnetic map, containing a selection of strong stainless steel magnetic balls and cylinders.
My kids loved adding the magnetic balls to the map for all the places we have recently visited.
The quality of the finish is beautiful and I really do love the way the map looks hanging above the fireplace in my office.
