This map didn’t have so much paper wear but it had a lot of only partially erased false starts and tooling marks with two full horizontal folds that caused considerable damage to the watercolour ‘wapon’ borders (see images below). All the damage has been digitally restored or removed using existing map assets to maintain continuity of stroke weight and brush texture. 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 10 hours to complete.
