Printable Road Map for West & North Africa

I'm looking for a decently detailed road map for west and north Africa which I can print and blow up to DIN A1. I like the old fashioned idea of sticking it up on the wall and start route planning...

Willing to pay but unable to find anything online??

I found the Reisse 'know how' map for West Africa good whilst on the road. It is quite detailed. I assume they used older IGN maps to plot some of the minor dirt roads as they are no longer 100% accurate but a good indication of what is now navigable.

Cant help you with printable online maps sorry.
