Wide angle world wall map, limited edition print, mounted and framed
For sale is a beautifully mounted and framed'wide-angle' map, from The Future Mapping company. This is a long out of print 2011 limited edition map, only 250 were printed. It was mounted and framed by an established framer in Leeds, W Yorks. Apart from a little mark on the edge of the frame, it's in perfect condition. This world map shows the planet from a new perspective.

It based our'Wide-Angle' map on the rarely seen Sinu-Mollweide projection, giving you a space-jumper's view of the planet. The metallic sheen of the surrounding seas creates the impression of the world reflected in a droplet poured from an alchemist's bottle. We love the futuristic look of this map, which at the same time reminds us of the prehistoric land mass Pangea. Don't be fooled by the unorthodox appearance though, as this is another of our Equal Area projections. This means countries are drawn in their correct proportions to one another, which is only fair in our opinion.

We can guarantee this map will earn its keep: as well as looking incredible on your wall, it will be the centrepiece for many a conversation. We print our maps on to the highest quality FSC approved silk-coated paper using the lithographic printing process.

This works like a mechanised version of traditional screen printing. A plate is made for each colour and then laid down individually, creating a stunning print with maximum definition and impact. A sealer is applied to protect the inks and gloss UV varnish used to add contrast and highlight boundaries.

Developed in 1953 by Allen K Philbrick, this projection fuses the Sinusoidal projection, which was first used in the 16th Century, with Karl Brandan Mollweide's map of 1805 and challenges our assumption of how the flattened globe should look. Still an equal area projection that maintains fidelity of area, we like this projection for its bold graphic view. This item is in the category "Antiques\Maps, Atlases & Globes\World Maps".
