The Future Mapping Company's very first map is a design classic. The striking shapes created by the map projection combined with a unique colouring of the world makes this reference map a statement piece of wall art.
The equal-area projection shows the countries in their correct proportions to one another. We think that this alternative and thought provoking vision of the world is not just beautiful but important. Sea depth layers, North and South Pole projections as well as the usual mountain ranges, rivers, city populations, also make this an ideal point of reference.
The Future Mapping Company uses the highest quality FSC approved silk-coated paper in their lithographic printing process, which works like a mechanised version of traditional screen-printing. A plate is made for each colour and then laid down individually, offering a stunning, quality print, with great definition and colour impact. A sealer is applied to protect the inks and gloss UV varnish used to add contrast and highlight boundaries.
This fantastic map comes laminated, making it very durable and versatile, you can draw on it and wipe it off afterwards, also you can place our Mark-It-Dots to show where you have been!
Warning: This map is approximately a million times more beautiful in real like than on your computer screen. The luminous colour and glossy metallics have been known to cause palpitations, so have a chair ready when it arrives.
Details: Country boundaries, capital and major cities, rivers, highest peaks, sea depths, North/South Pole projections and a shaded physical relief layer.
