Geographical Fun Atlas CD
If you have any doubts that learning Geography can be fun, this CD is for you! The maps on this CD will thrill you like no other maps have ever done before!
No history, no journal can be understood without the knowledge of maps and good service is done when we make such information more easy and agreeable. Maps are generally studied as a part of the curriculum at school. Their value in terms of acquainting students with the world has been proved beyond doubt. If the same maps were presented in a form that young students could associate with, then the value of maps would undoubtedly be enhanced.
The twelve maps presented on this outstanding CD are those of England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, France, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Prussia, Germany, Holland, Belgium, Denmark and Russia. These are no ordinary maps. Each one is presented as a part of an intriguing caricature - England as Queen Victoria, France as a hook-nosed lady and Germany as a dancing lady. The outline of each map is woven into the fabric of the caricature in a stunningly imaginative manner. Each map is brightly colored and contains a lot of geographical detail.
A girl was bored. Her brother was ill and in bed. She decides to entertain the brother and ends up producing caricatures of class. This was how the father of the girl, realized that his daughter, not quite 15 years of age, had the exceptional talent of presenting objects in a humorously entertaining style - as stunningly imaginative caricatures.
This was the beginning of an effort that resulted in the production of some of the most unusual maps of European countries the world has ever seen. It surely took exceptional skill, talent and vision to present the maps in such delightful and insightful manner - Scotland as a struggling bagpiper, England hidden behind the caricature of Queen Victoria and Russia dressed up as an Emperor. The use of bright colors and vivid imagery make each of the twelve maps on this CD even more eye-catching. As if this wasn't allurement enough, each map is accompanied by some exquisitely composed rhymes, which in an equally humorous manner extol the virtues of the country shown in the map.
These maps were produced with the intention of making the study of maps more appealing to young scholars who normally think globes and maps are wearisome. I am confident that this purpose has been served many a times over.
"I was stunned by the incredible genius of the person who created these absolutely fabulous maps. I teach Geography at school and was wondering why I never set my eyes on these maps before. I only wish someone did something to make the maps of the U.S more attractive to students. The eye for detail in each caricature and the selection of the most appropriate theme for each country astounded me. The Scottish bagpiper takes the cake for me. Its great that you put these maps on CD so that many can study and enjoy viewing these masterpieces of art."

"The fascinating style used in designing and producing these maps is truly out of this world. I spent hours pouring over the details of each map and will do so again, whenever life becomes dull. I must thank the producers of this CD for the enjoyable and fruitful time that I spent studying these maps."
