During the 1930's and 1940's, several National Geographic world maps were designed using a projection that separated the eastern and western hemispheres. National Geographic has brought back this classic view of the world with updated, modern cartography and an elegant earth-tone color palette. This new, yet fashionably retro, world map is the World Hemispheres.
Map is printed on premium quality paper stock, rolled, and packaged in a clear, hard plastic tube.
The map is encapsulated in heavy-duty 1.6 mil laminate which makes the paper much more durable and resistant to the swelling and shrinking caused by changes in humidity. Laminated maps can be framed without the need for glass, so the fames can be much lighter and less expensive.
