This unique map of modern-day Spain is a digitally rendered design, inspired by antique map prints.
It displays all of Spain's present-day autonomous communities, regions and provinces, including the Canary Islands in a box inset at the bottom right corner. The shaded relief of the mountain ranges, colour scheme, vignetted shading of the seas and use of type throughout are all inspired by examples of antique maps.
The design is embellished with sixteen illustrations depicting famous landmarks cities around the country, a florid border inspired by Spanish wall tiles, coats of arms (or escudos) representing each region and autonomous community, and a decorative title cartouche at the bottom left corner.
All titles and names on the map are written in standard Castilian Spanish, with co-official or alternative names in regional languages written below or alongside in parentheses, e.g. Lérida (Lleida).
