AJ Klinghoffer takes us on an intriguing 1,000-year worldwide journey to illustrate the problem, in the process emphasising the fact that the well-established map projections of Mercator and Peters can be badly misleading, albeit in very different ways (Mercator's 1569 map has accurate shapes, but exaggerates the Arctic and diminishes tropical lands, Peters' 1972 map is equal-area, but has distorted shapes).
