The map was a single low quality, seamless scan of a physical document so the paper wear had to be digitally dressed out and the missing information (gaps in the map) recreated from existing detail. Also, because this is a restoration of a hand-drawn map the original pencil lines were also removed along with false starts and unfinished lettering. Corrected errors like letter inserts, however, have been left in. The finished map was digitally enhanced to give the best possible clarity and the background replaced with an ultra high-resolution paper texture with a subtle vignette to give the map the appearance of a slightly aged physical document.
The map is designed to be printed at size A1 (841mm x 594mm / 33.1" x 23.4") and the project took around 12 hours to complete.
The original map contained a full surround scale bar and pencil annotation, also the parchment was heavily paper worn. The full image was also off square by approximately 3 degrees anticlockwise.
Prints of this restored map are available to purchase in size A1 (841mm x 594mm / 33.1" x 23.4") on high-end 225gsm matt photo paper reproduced with a wide colour gamut and high ink loads.
