Some people like to read a good book. I'd rather read a good atlas. And in an atlas there are place names and with some place names I think: how? (Secretly, there's usually a very easy explanation for it, but reality isn't half as much fun as the imagination.) In the Netherlands you have so many "how then" places that you could fill a map with it. With this one.

How do you determine which place will be on the map and which will not?

With my topographically savvy wet finger. If a place name brought a smile, I took it with me, so it depends entirely on my own sense of humor. Some names just sound weird (Fiemel), others testify to a huge dry lumpiness (what do we call our village? Just, Village!), still others are fun in context (Hollum and Ballum, One and One-West) or simply remarkable (Numero Thirteen, The Last Penny).

Super nice job done! Letters are very small.. You really have to sit on top of it to read the names.

What a very nice poster! Super interesting to see which place names have changed over time or have remained the same. Delivered quickly and of good quality. We are very happy with it!

What a beautiful map! My husband loves maps and was very happy to see this. It is very nice to read the names of cities in Old Dutch!

What a great map, you don't get bored! Some stations still cause headaches 😉 I bought one for myself and one as a gift for my sister who will also find it completely top.
Also great contact with seller Victor: quick response to mail and personal delivery in the same week!
