"Dutch World Map in Typography" is a modern and educational world map that consists entirely of Dutch country names.
This map is also available in English.
Looking at contemporary home and business interiors, a contemporary and modern font has been chosen for this unique world map.
From a distance, this world map already looks very artistic. But once up close, you'll see that all country names are playfully positioned in the world map. The country names are of course in the right place.
For the best result, I advise you to have this world map printed on a size of 160x90cm (16:9 aspect ratio).
I do not recommend a size smaller than 120cm wide, because then the smaller country names will become unreadable.
Recommended materials for this world map are: Xpozer, Aluminum, Steel, Poster, Acrylic Glass, Perspex and Wallpaper.
Why specifically these materials?
Because these materials have a smooth surface and therefore all country names can be printed sharply (and thus clearly legible).
In principle, I do not recommend a print on Canvas, as canvas has a structure and relief that makes the smaller country names less legible.

In addition to painting, Ricardo also creates collages, such as his unusual 'World Map of Coffee Beans': https://bit.ly/2mQIraK This unusual world map consists of hundreds of coffee beans glued one by one onto a large acrylic sheet.
His original artworks are photographed in high resolution. Orders of large (wall filling) Artprints are therefore also possible.
