Beautiful poster of Antarctica for $10

I had the greatest map Antarctica hanging in my dining room when I lived in Lincoln Square.

I got it at the Rand McNally closing sale on Michigan Avenue for $6. Some of the lines were printed in silver ink.

I can’t believe 17 years later I found the same map online for sale! $10 for a 42-inch x 58-inch print (only $5 to ship) from usgs.gov.

Over the years my map has some torn corners from hanging it with binder clips. I’d love to get a replacement of my beloved map.

Here’s some more detail shots of the map when it hung in my apartment five years ago.
