    I use the map as a wall decoration. It has an antique look that makes it appear more as a picture than a map. I have collected and used National Geographic maps for more than 50 years. They are the best.

    I have this product on my wall. I like it because it shows the world right after WWII, but before anyone knew how the borders would be redrawn... interesting historical information. The projection of the map makes places near the equator (e.g. Africa, India) look too big though.
