• Magenta shows how much angles get distorted; green shows how much size gets distorted.
• It’s great geek-bait for cubical conversations.
• Makes a great gift for geography buffs and the science-minded.

Print details:
• Printed on semi-gloss photographic paper. (Other options available to reduce cost.)
• Printed in vibrant archival inks, durable against fading and aging. (HP Vivid 9-color system.)

The item will be shipped in a poster tube. A frame is not included.

Contact us for custom requests: We can make individual maps in any of these projections.

The map is absolutely beautiful! I highly recommend this map! It provides a new perspective and looks especially stunning with a black background. I requested the black background since it looks similar to a sphere and the black background looks like space.
