This folded map (890mm x 1000mm) pictorially illustrates the history of Ireland. With historical locations and events illustrated pictorially in the form of charming cartoon vignettes, the map is surrounded by the armorial crests of Ireland. The map was drawn by Leslie Bullock and first published in 1963 by Collins Bartholomew as a fold-up map. This popular map from its time has now been re-digitized and republished in association with the Collins Bartholomew Archive using the latest printing technology. The print media used is 90 gsm “Progeo” paper which was specially developed as a map paper. It has high opacity to help reduce show through and a cross grain giving it greater durability to as the map is being folded.
