The map was a single, 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. The existing lettering was very worn and rough, however, I decided to leave it as is in order to preserve the authentic hand of the cartographer. 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 (594mm x 841mm / 23.4" x 33.1") and the project took around 6 hours to complete.
