Bought this very large laminated map in order to better visualise my son's travels during a year with the GBA ship LOGOS HOPE.
The map is huge! You need a big wall, but it is always a talking point and very informative.
The laminated version allows me to put stickers on to show progress and remove them later. I have glued a thin wooden strip to act as a frame and make it easier to mount on the wall. Cold possibly have achieved the same with the cheaper version of the map and a polycarbonate sheet but overall that would have cost considerably more.
good map in restrained colours and using a sensible projection for a world map. I bought it for a 10-year old grandson who seems delighted with it. His younger sister enjoys it too. As it is a large paper object, to avoid risk of tearing, I bought the laminated version and think the extra cost worth paying. (assess the dimensions carefully; it's big for small rooms at home)
Came packaged in a great tube that protected the map. It's absolutely beautiful and is presented in my wall. Pity I can't find a frame that fits this rather odd dimensions, but it still looks incredible as a standalone. Highly recommend it for anyone looking for a map to pin up to their wall.
