Help me find a print!

    I wanted a Stephen Walter map of London but at several hundred to several thousand pounds it is out of the question :D

    So basically, I have a bare wall that is an oxblood red and I want a print in the middle of it - quite large and dominating. I have it in my head that a print with plenty of white or lots of white space would look good. I did make my own typography print thing that I quite liked but I feel a bit of a prick putting my own 'art' on the wall.

    So if anyone knows of anything a bit similar to Stephen Walter's map of London then post something.

    Must be of London (or at a push Northumberland and Newcastle).

    But thought it looked a bit like something you get in a poncy bar.

    If you're looking for a London map, Museum of London do quite a few, but not exactly 'art'

    Sohei Nishino - Diorama Map London 2010
    This Photographic joiner of the city of London is a patchwork of around 4,000 Black and White photographs by Japanese artist Sohei Nishino. Nishino has mapped out ten cities including London, Paris and New York City. Nishino describes the process as "re-imagining" a landscape and it begins with a month long walk through the city. He photographs different sections of a City on Black and White film. He then hand processes the images and assembles them using scissors and glue in his Tokyo Studio. In an age where photographs are consumed on glowing computer screens and not printed out Nishino makes large, physical objects assembled from photographs printed by himself. The images are linked to ancient maps that abstracted land and our modern world of google earth.

    ViolentPanda Hardly getting over it.

    What about any of Wenceslaus Hollar's 17th-century plates of London (wikipedia has some fairly hi-def images)?

    I love his panorama of the city before and after the Great Fire.

    For the size firky wants, the image file would need to be 5-10mb in size for the detail to reproduce decently. Just blowing up/resizing an existing file would probably mean massive pixellation in a big print.

    They are nice. I'm a Londonophile, so I like finding new takes on the city. :)

    8115 sitting down is bad for you

    Bear with me, I need to think.

    What would the (rough) measurements be? I can't estimate.
