Scaled by population

29th April 2005 at 01:00
Nigeria is vast but Canada is tiny. India and China dwarf Russia and the US. The Population Map is a large laminated world cartogram (89 x 127cm) in which the size of each country is proportional to its population. The effect is powerfully informative, making essential aspects of contemporary politics immediate to the eye. Smaller maps drawn on the same principle illuminate periods of the past and a projected future: a minute North America in 1650 and an imposing Europe in 1900, but Asia's clear predominance is consistent throughout history. pound;19.95 from Carel Press.
