COLOUR-BLIND FRIENDLY MAPS

We have  recently improved our colourblind friendly maps  to make them more inclusive. We took them to the Geographical Association Conference and they were very well received by teachers, publishers and examination boards. I hope you will agree these maps are more pleasant to look at and most importantly work for all forms of colourblindness. It is estimated that one in every classroom has a form of colourblindness. Consider everyone when you are choosing your next map for the classroom or office wall. Also included in our personalised map section.

MYTHICAL  MONSTERS premium  WORLD MAP

Brilliantly designed by Peter Dobbin the Mythical Monster Map allows you to learn about the world’s astonishing-looking Monsters which are linked to country customs and stories in legends. The Monsters exhibit a variety of characteristics: from the strong but unintelligent Troll of Scandinavia to the benevolent and extremely powerful Azure Dragon of China to the beautiful, magical forest-dwelling woman Madremonte of Colombia. Behaviour varies from Monster to Monster: some are threatening, some are helpful to humans and some have magical powers. The body shape and colours and dynamic poses help to highlight the individual characteristics of each Monster.

On the larger versions of the Monster Map there is a description of each Monster’s country of origin and of their characteristics. Each creature’s description is clearly labelled with a matching silhouette to correspond with the colour illustration on the map. 

 

We can also print personalised versions of this map with your own title, or with your title and favourite monster. Make sure you look through all the options there are 61 monsters to choose from.

Set to print at A2, A1 and A0 size, but other sizes possible on request.
