How do you draw a three dimensional globe onto a flat sheet of paper? Cartographers have been unraveling this question for centuries, using mathematics and technical drawing skill to interpret the physical earth onto a flat plane. Each of the map projections shown on this poster display the same information — the surface of the earth — using twelve different formulas. It is a concise yet wholly incomplete history of projections spanning 2,000 years from about 100 AD to 2018.

This 18x24 poster is printed with a shimmering Silver Metallic ink for the maps and PMS Red 32 for text.
