[ these are things ] world maps

i don't think i've ever had a proper world geography lesson. isn't that weird? by fifth grade, i only studied english and math at school. the rest of the day's lessons, like science or social studies or geography, just didn't happen. i'm not entirely sure why but, at the time, i wasn't complaining! by the time world geography did come into the picture (briefly) in middle school, i couldn't have cared less. especially because it was such a boring subject.

now if we had studied world maps that looked like these, i would've paid a lot more attention. these are so beautiful! in the designers' own words:
"All we wanted was a simple, modern world map. When our search turned up nothing but glossy posters and cheap antique reproductions, we knew it was time to design our own."
i'm glad someone thought to do it!!
