The Map of Mann is a characterful map, true to the place itself.
I began drawing this map in 2017, it was the birth of Royale Maps, and I dived head-first with a whimsical approach to cartography.
There weren’t many imperatives, only that the map had to be accurate, decorative and ooze Mann’s folklore and particularities.
This map was influenced by Dutch ornamental cartography from the 16th & 17th century.
Enveloped in Manannan’s protective cloak, the Isle of Man map accurately features:
- Official Towns, villages and notable settlements.
- Main roads.
- TT and Southern motorcycle courses.
- Historical and heritage sites.
