Broadside. 19 1/2 x 13 inches. Some scuffing and rust marks and stamp remnants, otherwise in good condition.

Broadside manifesto with two colums of text and 17 diagrams that accompanied the Dymaxion Air ocean World Map. Fuller claims that his patented Dymaxion map will benefit air travel as much as "the Mercator map was appropriate to the square rigged east-west sailings with the Trade Winds closely paralleling the Equator, around which the Mercator projection was least distorted."

Shoji Sadao (1927-2019), a American cartographer and architect who had studied under Fuller at Cornell. Sadao later collaborated on many project with Fuller. He served as Director of the Noguchi Museum in Long Island City, New York from 1989-2003. This text undated but a later version of the original text, circa 1983.
