The One Planet Map by Harajukumatt is a work of art that I find fascinating. Although I'm not the biggest fan of geography, there's something about this map that I find intriguing.

Using the names of countries and fantastic use of bright colors, Harajukumatt has created a simplistic map that is easy to follow. However, I don't think this map will be of any use to you on road trips.

Implications - Perhaps the most stunning feature of this typographic map is the fact that the font sizes reflect the actual spacial geography of each nation. Look at Russia and Canada dominating the northern territories. Now if I can only find the smallest nation.
