FAQ
The Maps
Are the maps reliable ?

Of course !. As reliable as maps can be. We use up-to-date cartographic data providd by a leading cartographic company (with several prizes from the cartographic and editorial world). However, if you detect some cartographic error (the maps usually have errors, some intentional – but harmless – others not), please tell us: art @ mapondo, com.

The maps are Scratch-maps ?

No, our world map posters are no sctach maps. You can admire them, hang them, etc.. But hey, if you want, you can scratch them of course, under your responsibility. No matter how much you scratch, you’re not going to get anything out of it. If you scratch it, you scrap it. People are really into scratching maps nowadays. We can think of a millon things to scratch before scratching a map !.

Why is there a Lion on Diego L.Rodriguez World map poster ?

This is an art map. We ask Diego to express his vision of the world through a map. His map “The World is Roaring” faetures a Lioness, a mother, which is an allegory of Mother Earth, roaring. Our planet has plenty of reason to be angry, right? We loved this artistic and subtle vision. This disturbing and aggressive figure in that perfect aesthetic of soft and classic colors brings much life to the map and gives it all its meaning.

Frame it or pin it ?

It’s yours, can do whatever you want. We mad it easy for you to choose. If you want to frame it, the Mapondo poster maps have a standard size and fit in standard frames. You can pint it of course. With colored pins you can indicate the countries where you have been, where you want to go, where you do not want anything to go, etc …You can also hang it with stationery clips. It’s just as cheap and fast.

Paper is a living and fragile matter that over time can deteriorate and change. Our maps are printed on high quality paper, and some are covered by a layer of varnish that gives them extra protection … but not against UVA rays: avoid exposure to direct light.

When you receive your map, remove it from the tube, and delicately roll it in the opposite direction to avoid unwanted folds of the paper. The map will regain its best appearance. 

Why are the world map posters in english and the vintage maps in french ?
  • English is the language everyone wants to speak. So for now, we publish the maps in English.

  • The original creator and editor of the maps, Jean Anscombre, was, as his name implies, French. Former school-master, he founded his own publishing house to create material for schools. It is our tribute to him. 

Can Mapondo maps alter the concentration ?
Hopefully!. Read our story. Maps can unleash your imagination. That’s good ! If that happens, admiring a map will always be more profitable than watch useless videos on Youtube.
