Swallows and Amazons birthday presents and Christmas gifts

The maps I drew, depicting locations mentioned in Arthur Ransome’s book ‘Swallows and Amazons’ and the 1974 film, are now available on a number of products. I though they might make good gifts.

They have large scarves, which always make a good present and sweatshirts for anyone prone to getting lost.

You’ll see cards, notebooks and prints available if you click around the site.

They have travel mugs,

Forgive me, different maps seem to fit the dimensions of each item in different ways but they offer good quality ceramic mugs .
