Hi, new to the forum, etc. I'm here because I'm fascinated with maps--historical, modern, fantasy, real, and any other permutation thereof--and can keep myself amused by just looking at an atlas for days on end, no matter how dull the area it maps may be. Sadly, however, I'm not actually knowledgeable about cartography.

I'm certainly not knowledgeable when it comes to terminology, which is one of the things that brought me here. As soon as I find the right place to post about it, I plan to chime in with questions about a certain type of antique (or possibly faux antique) global map projection.
