Cartography or map-making is the study and practice of crafting representations of the Earth upon a flat surface. A person who makes maps is called a cartographer. One of the most famous world maps is the Mercator Projection based on the map presented by the Flemish geographer and cartographer Gerardus Mercator in 1569. Of course, way back then it had various inaccuracies showing some countries larger than they really are. But who cares about that - this Corkboard Map allows you to build a version of the world the way YOU see it, just like our Flemish 16th Century friend did.
Based on a pin-up board, this Cork Board Map is a self adhesive map of the world fashioned from cork which serves two important functions. Firstly it looks fabulous and complements any wall you stick it to; the world is pretty cool after all. Secondly, you can use the push pins provided to attach photographs, postcards, tickets and mementos of your travels.
Cork Board Map allows you to create a totally personalised and unique world map. You can literally picture your world. Here's an idea; if your friend is due back from their travels, get them one of these to distract them. That way you don't have to listen to all their stories from abroad as they'll be too busy sticking.
