Comments about World Classic, Pacific Centered Wall Map, Enlarged and Laminated:
This is a beautiful map. I really like how the Pacific centered projection give a different view of the world. It is also quite useful for me since I live on one side of the Pacific and often do business and travel on the other.
Do watch the size, I looked at the measurements but didn't lay them out and was surprised, pleasantly, at how large the map is.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
