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.

This Map is hanging in our dining room and prompts many conversations regarding the countries; there was even a discussion regarding how it looks like it is a 'relief' map - with ridges, etc. Our guests had to actually touch it to realize it was smooth and wasn't a 'relief'.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
