Wall Art

I am currently renting and cannot decorate the walls of my home. The palette is neutral at the moment and as I love COLOUR I have been on the look out for some statement art pieces to personalise my bare walls. I bought this map from notonthehighstreet.com a few weeks back from The Future Mapping Company & am just waiting for a free weekend where I can enjoy hanging it. I’m thinking of a white gloss frame.

Not only does this map look ultra cool, with silver metallic seas & colourful continents—but it also uses a very clever formula in it’s layout. It uses a Cylindrical Equal Area Projection—which basically means that the Countries are represented in their correct proportional size and not how most maps portray our world. Most maps lose the true proportions of countries due to the process of transferring a round globe onto a flat surface. On normal maps the Soviet Union became 223% bigger than it actually is amongst other countries. This map gives a really interesting & accurate vision of the world.
