World political upside down in envelope: 2016
Traditional world maps are drawn from the perspective of the first European explorers and cartographers – with the Northern Hemisphere at the top. We think it’s time to break with tradition and show the world from the perspective of all those people living in the Southern Hemisphere. After all, there is no ancient geographical feature saying ‘This way up’. This time, the hemispheres are flip flopped and so are the continents, but still in a readable format (east coasts are west, and west coasts are east). This Pacific-centered map clearly shows all political boundaries and capital cities. Packaged in an envelope, this map folds out to 840 x 594 mm and is ideal as a wall map.
