recent arrival
An unusual and attractive pair of spheres on which London has been given 'pole' position with the earth shown on a slanted projection, thus the Antipodes appears central to the southern hemisphere projection. The North and South Poles remain prominent with conspicuous lack of known detail and the effect is to show one sphere as very predominantly water, the other landmass. Printed on thin paper and backed with protective archival tissue.
