        Comments about World Political Map (Classic), Enlarged and Laminated:

        Great product overall, the only complaint I have is that the fonts seem a bit big, I would prefer a smaller font and thiner borders.

        But other then that, I have no complaints what so ever. The map is very sharp and clear, big enough to cover one side of my home office. I've always had a world map in my office and this new replacement does not dissapoint!

          Comments about World Political Map (Classic), Enlarged and Laminated:

          Product is attractive if made properly. First map had small bug laminated into the atlantic ocean, and wrinkles in lamination. Good return policy and people. Secoand map also had small bug laminated in it, this time in alaska, there were also wrinkles in the laminate. I bought this same product some years ago and the weight of the paper was much better. Needs quality controll and better materials.

            My daughter FINALLY became curious about her world. Where are all these countries they talk about in the news? Where are those cities, those mountains those ancient monuments, those....? Now she's plugged into places & ideas she never thought about before. Plus the huge size of the map covers up some drywall dings in her room!

            Don't yield to political pressure

            By Ray

            from New York, NY

            Verified Buyer

            Comments about World Political Map (Classic), Enlarged and Laminated:

            In 1998, I bought a same map (smaller size) where Taiwan has a capital (mark star) called Taipei. China also has a capital (mark star) called Beijing. Right now, both Taipei and Beijing are still capitals. This is a fact. But to my extreme disappointment, the new map put Taipei as a city, not a capital. Do you surrender to China's pressure? Why? The map should show the fact, not your political surrender.
