A note about maps I use original vintage maps and have literally thousands in my studio, ranging from 20-120 years old. Your location can be a country, region, town, village, island or group of islands, sea, lake, or even star constellation!
Depending on the location, I can’t always detail specific roads, addresses or landmarks except in major cities, and modern holiday resorts are rarely marked on vintage maps as they often didn’t exist at the time the map was printed. However, even if the place is not specifically marked, the location can still be centralised on the heart and you can choose to mark it with an added sparkle if you would like one.
The place and size of heart will often dictate the best map to use on your heart, but I will always select the loveliest possible map. Occasionally there might be a slight crease on the map if it is from a folded map rather than atlas which adds to the charm.
