Toronto-centered world map poster
Leonard Guelke created this projection to tell you exactly how far it was from anywhere on Earth to Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Draw a straight line on this map from Toronto to anywhere in the world and, with some simple math, you've got the real-world distance. In order to achieve this benefit, you need to sacrifice some shapes and sizes. *** Printed on Synthetic paper (for framing) at 56" x 56" -- $424.00 **** This image is taken from Seeing Through Maps: The Power of Images to Shape Our World View by Ward L.
