Marmota Maps The World of Animals
A world map with the most famous, most beautiful, and most interesting animals in all regions around the globe. Illustrated with love by Dieter Braun.
For the first time “the World of Animals” shows Dieter Braun's famous animal illustrations together with new drawings on one poster. Almost 100 animals populate this beautiful world map. The world map shows the different climate zones, the topography, like the Andes or the Himalayas, the vegetation of the different countries, and important landmarks, as the Fuji, the Pyramids, or Angkor Wat. Thus children and parents can get to know the different animals and explore their habitats. All animals, the landscapes, continents, and oceans were illustrated with love in Dieter Braun's distinctive style. “The World of Animals” is great fun for small and grown-up explorers and raises the interest for close and far areas around the globe.
