    These maps are beautiful! (Eastern and Western Hemispheres). I bought them just for display - not for education or accuracy necessarily. They look like they should be on the wall of an old study above a worn leather sofa with pipe smoke lingering in the air... The only thing is the size is not a standard frame size, so they would have to be custom framed.
