    R. Buckminster Fuller (b. 1895 - d. 1983) was a philosopher, engineer, futurist and author who is perhaps best remembered as the creator of the geodesic dome. But his impact goes far beyond that. From words that commonly appear in our glossary, to even subjects like cartography. This map was the final publications of his icosahedron based world map that endeavored to more objectively look at the planet with a comparatively less distorted projection and also a removed sense of "up" and the political implications it might entail. Brightly color coded to show "mean low annual temperature" for both land and sea. But perhaps most notable about this copy is that it was signed by Bucky himself, just a few months prior to his death.
