This Raleigh Dymaxion (TM) map is a desktop version at 1/4th of the size of the 22''x34'' full-size version we produced. It is perfect for a student desktop map, as it shows the sizes and shapes of the continents accurately. The paper format can be cut up and folded into the 20-sided polyhedron that Fuller started with. Or this size, when laminated, can make a snappy addition to your breakfast table as an exciting placemat. It's educational, as it has a lengthy explanation printed on the reverse side. The text on the map (being reduced in size) is hard to read, but the desktop version has the same vivid colors of the original. Call us for a quote on volume pricing 800-736-1293

Buckminster Fuller Dymaxion Desktop Map  

This Raleigh Edition of the Dymaxion map, first designed in Raleigh, North Carolina, is a vivid color reproduction of the original rendition created by R. Buckminster Fuller in 1954 in his office there. We have reproduced the map exactly as it was first conceived and produced by its creator. Both the land masses and the grayscale shading in the oceans represent mean low annual temperatures.
The visionary Fuller designed this map to help us recognize that "we're all astronauts aboard a little spaceship called Earth." Because it can be reconfigured into a variety of patterns, it also communicated the point that there are many ways to see the world. At the 11"x17" size, the text on the map (being reduced in size) is hard to read, but this desktop version has the same vivid colors of the original.
