Pre-Order Skyrim, Get "Premium Quality Map"

VG24/7 have reported an announcement from Bethesda that pre-order customers of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will come with a "Premium quality map" (presumably of the game world, rather than Ireland or somewhere). What with the endemic loathing of pre-order bonuses in this industry, I'm guessing that this is going to cause a good deal of conflicted soul-searching, and what makes it even worse is that while Morrowind had one of the greatest paper maps of all time, the paper map that was released for Oblivion was both colourless and useless. What will we be getting with Skyrim? We just don't know.

EDIT: OK, we do know a bit. VG24/7 just updated their story with a picture of the map, with copies of Skyrim balanced annoyingly on top. Click through the jump to see it. Also, to see how the PC version is at the back. Boo!
