The Old World

Old world maps are great! Not only are they really, really beautifully designed & decorated, but the "inaccuracy" of them is so amazing. Look at Australia, its just kind of "scrawled" because it was so hard to navigate and draw. So great.

There's also "continental drift" and stuff, but i don't reckon any of that has affected the lay of the land in millions of years - so this was the best possible result given the technology available.
