Hobo-Dyer - Mead Museum version (image size is 18x36")
ODT collaborated with the Amherst College museum staff to develop a custom-designed world map for “A Global View,” a new installation of cultural artifacts organized as a part of the Mead’s whole-museum reinstallation project. After reviewing numerous options, museum curators selected “The World Turned Upside Down,” a map which places the southern hemisphere at the top and shows the relative size of continents. The map is a Hobo-Dyer Equal Area Projection, South-Up, and was commissioned and published by ODT and designed and Oxford Cartographers (UK). This handsome and informative map challenges visitors’ preconceptions about something as seemingly straightforward as the geography of the world,” said Elizabeth Barker, the Mead Museum’s director and chief curator. “In that way, it furthers the Mead’s educational mission.” Now available laminated or paper rolled.
