ˇ--------As of 29.10.2013, this map has been officially completed, and it was ensured it is almost perfectly flawless(file shown there is old version, new one is much better).
After few weeks, I am going to start selling prints via own professional online store, along with dozens of other own world map prints, in different sizes, designs and languages. Stay tuned for more.-----------
Political map of the world in summer 2013.
Complete poster includes one major and detailed political map of the present world, showing most of the important cities, sea currents, important mountain peaks, islands, and much more. It also includes hand-painted(using photoshop, various minor relief base renders, brushes, and then stamping) relief map, giving unique feeling to the mood of the map. Not counting one major map, there are 18 more maps included in the poster - large and detailed maps of earth´s polar regions, northern&southern polar night sky, flags of all sovereign nations and 14 minimaps, showing all from world's climate and tectonic plates to language groups or largest cities.
Framing of the map was done from my own photos taken in art gallery.
On the corners, there are panels showing brief timeline of the human history, largest countries and dependencies by population, largest countries by area, and 75 world's largest cities.
This is the largest political map poster anyone I know about has ever made.
Soon, condensed and smaller versions of this will be created, as "Condensed Decorative", what will have only main map, national flags, and polar region maps, and also "Decorative Minor", featuring smaller version of the main map, smaller version of the polar regions, and just two minimaps.
Soon, these maps will be made into website(and also app), what will also show changes geopolitical situation during last 150 years.
I am also working to make these into another map projections.
Please, if you have time, download the map, and try to find as much mistakes as possible(etc.missing labels, completely wrong labels, wrong capitals, and other serious things). I want to make sure that the final print version will be flawless. Write the mistakes you have found in the comments.
Map is watermarked, just to prevent potential abuse.
