Ravensburger Portrait Of The Earth 1000pc Jigsaw Puzzle.
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.
High quality 1000 piece cardboard jigsaw puzzle. The finished puzzle measures 70 x 50cm when complete. Made from strong premium grade cardboard, with linen finish print to minimise glare on puzzle image.
