One of our most visually stunning maps, the Hawaii Physical Map shows all eight of the major islands and includes an inset of the entire chain of reefs stretching nearly 3,000 miles across the central Pacific. The map also shows the Hawaiian Ridge shelves underneath the islands, providing a wonderful perspective on how the islands were formed.

Framed and hanging in my office. Beautiful image. Dented by person rolling it up to put it in 'too thin' a mailing tube.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
