Comments about World Political Map (Earth-toned), Enlarged and Mounted:
The map itself is beautiful and a center piece of our dinning room wall. I was a bit disappointed in the frame. I know it is hard to frame something so big but for such a beautiful map it would be nice to have a frame that was a bit more fancy. I guess you probably ought to do it yourself because a nice frame would probably get banged up in transport anyway.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
