Attractive vintage pictorial map of the United Kingdom designed by Kempster and Evans for British Overseas Airways Corporation (B.O.A.C.)
The map, which was intended to entice travelers to the U.K., plays heavily upon historical British imagery and traditional Anglophilic subjects such as royalty, heraldry, crowns, castles, and history. Even the strapwork cartouches harken back to British Isles mapmaking of the 16th century.
The map is replete with cartoon figures and captions recording important events in Britain's history. There are insets of famous landmarks for London and Edinburgh. Surrounding the map is a decorative border of coats of arms for important British cities.
