Comments about World Political Map (Earth-toned), Poster Size and Laminated:
I bought this online after looking at maps at the book store. They had a rally mckinley map which had no details, and this one ( but a different size)... This map is defiantly detailed. I bought the laminated one, glued it to a poster board, and framed it. Bought map pins to mark cities we have been to. It's now sitting in my living room. Beautiful color. It's pretty up to date, except missing north and south Sudan. Bought this as a birthday gift for my travel.crazy husband.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
