Unique downunder viewpoint with cheeky Aussie humor. Stuart McArthur drew his first South-up map when he was 12 years old. At age 15, after being tormented for coming from the ''bottom of the world,'' Stuart resolved to one day publish a map with Australia at the top. Six years later, while at Melbourne University, he produced the world's first ''modern'' south-up map and launched it on Australia day in 1979. It has sold over 350,000 copies to date. Prices from $20. Many formats on sale now!
South Up maps have a long history. You can read about South-Up maps in our book Seeing Through Maps. Included are images from Rome (200AD), Etzlaub's map of Europe (1501), Japan, Lenz's "USA as seen from Canada" and others. There are now four "south up" maps available from ODT.
