If you have a relative or friend who is always talking or reminiscing about how the world maps have changed since they were younger - this is the ideal gift!
It's a personalised jigsaw map of the world, and you specify any year from 1890 to the current year.
The choice is up to you - it could be when the recipient was born or perhaps when they were at a certain age.
When you place the order the map is reproduced as it would have been for your chosen year. In addition, you can add a personal message of up to 60 characters which will be printed at the bottom of the jigsaw and will only be visible when the puzzle is fully completed!
The world mapping on the jigsaw is from the renowned Collins Bartholomew World Through Time historic cartographic archive. There is a different style and content for every year.
To add extra interest, details of significant events that happened during the chosen year are listed around the map.
This 400 piece jigsaw is supplied in an attractive presentation box which contains space on the lid to allow you to add your own hand-written message.
Hand-finished by expert craftsmen and made using 1.5mm millboard. The completed puzzle measures 47 x 32cm (18 x 12 inches).
Please type your personalised message to be printed on the jigsaw in lower case. The publishers will do their very best to print the message as submitted but may need to make adjustments due to font size and space availability in order to maintain the aesthetic features.
