While their prints are made for different locations around the world, they have a special place in their hearts for Britain. Chris is the son of a Derbyshire-born father and watches far too much Time Team.

Nina can successfully trace her lineage back to the Plantagenets (she is a direct descendant of Edward I & Eleanor of Castile and beyond) and wants nothing more than to be a school teacher in Britain.

They have taken pride in their craft, and aim to provide high-quality prints that can make people think of home or that favorite place somewhere far away with customer service that is second-to-none.

As self-proclaimed Anglophiles, they simply had to create a few Britain-themed prints (with more on the way including a Word Map of the Castles of Britain).

One such print is this British Pubs Union Jack piece which For The Love Of Maps will be giving away to one lucky recipient!

This 11×14 print, in the shape of the Union Jack, contains the names of dozens of the most ancient and famous pubs from across Britain including Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem, Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese, The Salisbury, and a boatload of others.
