If you don’t have the pleasure to be a student in a geography class where the teacher can draw an entire world map from memory (plot twist: the teacher is a History teacher, according to the comments), then it’s safe to assume that geography is probably not your favorite class
That’s fine, we’re not here to give you a geography lecture, but in this post, you will be looking at a lot of world maps.
The good news is that the world maps you will be seeing are beautiful and creative remakes done by talented designers out there. Keep in mind that as far as accuracies are concerned, these designers flex their creative license muscles as much as they can, and you’ll probably admire what they have created.
