Limited edition & originally painted by hand.

Viking, Forties, Dogger, Fisher, Sole. The Shipping Forecast is a much-loved staple of BBC Radio and a unique part of British culture. Carefully recited to a highly technical formula, the forecast is nature translated into poetry.

In 2022, a highly skilled watercolour artist (check out her work here) remastered the original Shipping Forecast Map. Her beautiful and intricate painting is replicated in 200 fine-art giclée prints. These prints use the finest Canon pigment-based inks, ensuring there will be no loss or change of colour for decades.

Printed on high-quality 300 gsm light cream coloured paper (archival quality, carbon neutral, & acid free) with an antique 'laid' texture for that perfect old map appearance.

Print measures 420 mm x 570 mm - a little larger than the black & white 3rd edition map (available here)
