Buckminster Fuller’s “Dymaxion Map" turns many of our assumptions about world maps on end, for considerable benefit; landmasses experience the least distortion of any projection, and are almost entirely contiguous. Furthermore, it folds into a perfect icosahedron, for viewing in the round.
The boldness and sensibility that were stifled by convention in cartography are released here, with a long, thoughtful creative process, fueled by a life of practicality.
