Combining the bold colors and sleek style with the upside-down (south-up) orientation, this map will definitely draw attention when on display.
An upside down map, especially a world map, is actually a really great tool to inspire open-mindedness and thinking outside the box. Rarely do we get to see the effect of changing our perspective as clearly as when we see an upside down map.
North being placed at the top of a map is really completely arbitrary, yet it has become such an ingrained convention that seeing a south-up map looks completely wrong.
When you see an upside down map, your entire perception of the world is completely different. You'll notice different aspects about the world's geography that you never noticed before. Countries and continents look different and proximity of different places is completely new.
It very much feels like looking at the world for the first time.
Not only is the upside-down aspect of the map quite striking, the style of the map itself is also very bold and will capture attention.
The colors of countries are bold appear especially vibrant in contrast with the dark oceans and seas.
Although the map is very unique and stylish, it's also loaded with current and accurate geographic information - both political and physical - making it an ideal map to display in any room in your home or place of work.
