During the 1930s and 1940s, National Geographic designed several world maps using a projection that separated the eastern and western hemispheres. We have brought back this classic view of the world with modern cartography and elegant earth tones for a fashionably retro view of the world. This version is mounted on wood material with beveled edges and a keyhole hanging slot on the back. Choose from four bevel-color styles to match your decor.
Mounted maps may take up to 10 days to manufacture. Please allow 2-4 weeks for delivery.
