map with a difference
This is not just any old map. Countries are represented in their correct proportional size (using something very clever called cylindrical equal area projection!), colours are striking with silver metallic for the seas, and details are given for country boundaries, capital and major cities, rivers, highest peaks, sea depths, north/south pole projections. Plus it comes in a variety of formats, including magnetised – to give a safe, durable, write-on/wipe-off surface to which magnets will cling.
Crikey. For a map-lover, this is quite a special gift. And for an art lover, it makes quite a statement on the wall. It could make map-lovers of us all.
