#649: Fanmap

Folding maps is a skill which I never mastered (like clingfilm)…I can certainly introduce folds, in the sense of cramming the whole thing randomly back in an envelope, but the maps tend not to survive very long and there’s always a nagging doubt that that phantom canal I’m searching for is purely an artifact of the last failed attempt to put the damn thing away in a hurry.

So, today’s invention is to print each map on a large fan. One flick of the wrist and the whole terrain is instantly viewable. Another flick and that downpour need not be a threat to the paper representation.
