The State of South Australia
The State of South Australia Map
The State of South Australia map has been hand-drawn in red and black ink over a 50 hour process, showcasing the Immense landscapes, iconic coastline and rugged desert terrain that make this state so spectacular. The design itself is bold and strong, with all important geographical features, wilderness areas, main cities and towns present. You will also find a large array of smaller townships also included and a unique style of desert design, known as stippling, that does not feature on any other map in the collection.
The map features all the main topographical landmarks, with the low hills and soaring mountains of the Mount Lofty, Flinders, Gawler, Middleback, Porcupine, Musgrave and Mann Ranges all distinctly visible. The iconic Eyre Peninsula, Yorke Peninsula, Adelaide Hills and Fleurieu Peninsula are dotted with cities, small towns and valleys, while to the West the terrain changes to the dry desert climate of the Nullarbor Plain. From the Limestone Coast all the way to Head of Bight, the coastline features historic capes, bays and island groups, as well as important national parks. To the North the great Australian Outback begins, with its famous salt lakes and desert regions stretching across the landscape.
What Goes Into Your Map
Born out of a love for Australia's mountains, wild places and fantastic nature, these maps are hand drawn with black and red ink in a style reminiscent of Christopher Tolkien. Each design is highly detailed and takes approximately 50 to 60 hours to complete, and are printed in limited numbers. They are perfect for those who want a special art piece to celebrate the uniqueness of their little corner of the world. I hope you enjoy the intricate style and penmanship of these maps. As these are hand drawn they do contain imperfections and variations, but that is part of their charm, and sets them apart from mass produced and computer generated prints.
Fine Art Grade Paper Quality
Your fine-art print is made on an acid-free 270gsm matte parchment and feels fantastically heavy and sturdy when handled; the best way to describe it is like card with a tactile feel that still has a bend to it. Detailing remains extremely sharp and colours are vivid thanks to the use of 9 colour pigment inks and industry standard paper quality when it comes to fine-art printing. You have the option to choose between two background colours; the Original, which is a soft white and has some subtle texturing, or Antique, which is printed on the same paper but contains an aged-look reminiscent of an antique map.
