This interesting map focuses on the oceans, showing the major ocean currents, the direction and timing of the monsoons, and even a large floating sea of algae in the north Atlantic. The antarctic continent is beginning to take shape. The map is surrounded by images of ocean dwellers, including whales, dolphins, narwhals, sharks, and sea turtles. Published by Theodore Auguste Joly.
