It's quite large when take it out of the back of the book, I believe there may be a wall poster to follow. :mrgreen:

Are there really plans for a poster? I was working out how to iron/de-crease mine to get it framed but I may just wait a while if thats the case!

Big missed opportunity! The aerial view on the reverse of the big map could have been produced from Feegle Maps. :lol:

Could you get some thin lath and make a tall, thin, freestanding poster frame/holder? It could lean gently against the wall and-or be propped up with something.

Is it just me or does the river Ankh look a lot like the river that runs through London? I noticed it when I was watching Eastenders the other day, with the millenium dome being where the Tower of Art rests.

Oddly enough a lot of sediment rich rivers tend to meander quite a bit as you get towards there mouth so the Ankh looks like the Thames but also looks like a lot of other rivers that go though a city . Check out Prague as another example :D

Ankh Morpork was modelled on London that's why it looks familiar. :mrgreen:

Surely it lends itself better to the twin cities of Buda & Pest? Two cities whose names were joined to create one city?
If you can fill the unforgiving minute,
With sixty seconds worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a man my son.
