First seen in print in 1955 as The Times Atlas of the World, the projection was designed by Oswald Winkel in 1921 with the aim of minimizing the three areas of distortion faced by map makers: area, direction and distance. Thus it became the Tripel Projection (Tripel is German for triple). The result is a wonderfully spherical-looking map, which gives a graceful curve to oceans and landmasses alike.
A true celebration of the beauty of mapped data. This top quality, 8 colour lithographic print rejoices in the freedom the craft and process allows, mixing metallic and fluorescent inks through political and physical data to dramatic effect.
