Faded Grandeur have created this beautiful typographic map collection as a testament to British travel and a love of Home. Celebrating all the ‘Great British Counties’ plus the plethora of cities, towns, villages, hamlets and even crofts that make up the amazing country of Great Britain.
After careers in Graphic Design and Education, and many years travelling the world, the pair of entrepreneurs behind the FADED GRANDEUR brand moved out from London after 30 years in the capital and set up shop in the Cotswolds Countryside, an area of outstanding natural beauty.
From London and the Home Counties of Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Kent, Surrey and Sussex, these maps are beautifully designed, and each created with a poetic and descriptive narrative to bring each of them to life. Other options including Scotland and The Cotswolds, ensure that the rich tapestry of Countries and Areas that make up Great Britain are all available. They can all be personalised to create wonderful bespoke gifts to celebrate any special occasion, or even as a heartfelt “thank you”.
Be it Births and Birthdays in Bedfordshire, Christenings in Cheshire and Cornwall; Engagements, Anniversaries and Weddings in Warwickshire; Moving home, Class Reunions and Corporate Gifts … every special gift occasion can be covered. Just tell the Faded Grandeur team what you want.
Combining typography and geography, The Great British County art collection are a fascinating feature for any home, office or hotel, be they modern or traditional. Pieces have been commissioned for homes in Scotland and Offices in Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire. In fact, the expat community are finding them a wonderfully creative solution for gifts for loved ones at home in the UK, and many have been sent abroad, including USA, Singapore and Cambodia! Choose from a myriad of counties, frame colours, styles and sizes.
These made-to-order pieces are produced on quality materials and showcased stunningly in handmade frames. All our frames arrive ready to hang and are created from sustained and managed forests that operate a replanting scheme. Our delivery sturdy box packaging is recycled and recyclable.
Over 50 Faded Grandeur maps are available online, all designed and made in the English Cotswolds, and all carrying the “Made in Britain” marque, which helps to unite, support and promote the British manufacturing sector within the UK and around the world.
