Mekel Map from TFL

Post  lerugray on Mon Aug 01, 2016 7:23 pm

Hi everyone!

I just received the Meckel map and realized its all on individualized sheets of paper, are you supposed to cut out the whole map and put it together? Or just use the maps on the pages? Thanks!

You need to cut the sheets out and trim them to size. An easy way of assembling them is to buy some clear plastic wallets to slide each sheet into. You can then sellotape whatever combination of sheets you need for a particular scenario. Most will only need a part of the full Meckel map. This has the advantage that you can pull the sections apart and re-assemble them at will. You can also write on them with washable pens.

I appreciate this requires some work, but I don't see how the maps could have been printed any other way. Borderless printing wouldn't have addressed the issue, as the maps were originally produced in the 19th C and are not a modern paper size.

Hope that helps.
