I feel deceived, and you should too. Are you aware we have been lied to about the world by the world? I have always been an advocate of wall maps and the illusive idea that cartographic art pieces provide a sense of global awareness. Apparently we are victims of skewed scale and mediocre map projections (read more about this diagrammatic deception here). Take the two-dimensional lie off your wall and replace it with honest metallic seas and accurate gradient color.
The Future Mapping Company has redefined wall maps by infusing precise proportions (using an equal-area projection technique) along with brilliant gradient colors (to reduce the illusion of abrupt country and continent borders). The result? Alternative and thought-provoking visions of our planet. Oh, and they are gorgeous!
These global depictions are available in three different lithographic color prints on silk-finish paper. Each Future Map is unexpectedly affordable at £25 ($39) each. If you have an entire wall pleading for cartographic metallic, how about custom wallpaper? Don’t miss the charismatic London Street Maps either.
