Do not be fooled by the antique style of this beautiful world wall map. Published in January 2013, the map includes the latest political boundaries. This map has been given the antique feel by including features you would expect to see on an antique globe.
Global Mapping's own Mary Spence (awarded an MBE for services to cartographic design), is behind this map, dropping in a more detailed enlargement of Central Europe plus insets of the two polar regions. The Analemma (normally found on old globes to depict which day of the year the sun is directly overhead and how sun time compares to clock time)is featured on the map along with descriptive text. The antique feel of the map is due to the muted colours and hill shading cleverly balanced by Mary.
