National Parks in the Style of Tolkien's Middle Earth Maps

Two things that go great together, for me at least, are maps and Tolkien. That seems to be the case for Dan Bell, an English artist who maps his homeland's national parks in an artistic style similar to the one in which Tolkien rendered Middle-Earth.

He works from open source maps, adding in such additional details, not always found in most national parks, as forests, Hobbit holes, towers, and castles. He's adapted the national parks of the United Kingdom as well as places like Oxford, London, Yellowstone National Park, and George R.R. Martin’s Westeros.

Just a disclaimer since he sells these maps, I'm not associated with him in any way.

City of Greyhawk [available again]

Granted its 2e, but still  good to be back. 
From the description:
Available now in print on demand formats:
The City of Greyhawk (2e)

From the high towers of its grand universities to the rancid alleys of its darkest slums, the City of Greyhawk awaits you. Center of magic and learning in the Flanaess, Greyhawk is also the home of powerful thieves, mighty warriors, traitorous ambassadors, and honest craftsmen.
They all await you within the pages of this information-packed boxed set.

You get four full-size, full-color maps, each depicting a different aspect of the Greyhawk campaign. Two 96-page books give you a detailed overview of the city and a closer look at its more influential citizens - and its more notorious criminals.
