Can we just take a moment to appreciate the Fuller Projection Peirce quincuncial projection?
This map presents a world that is nearly contiguous and at accurate sizes and shapes to the continents. And there is no “correct” orientation for it (the directionality of north/south being arbitrary after all )
The downsides are that it cuts up Antarctica and distorts the size of oceans, which is bad news for sailors and penguin researchers, but for geography in general it’s AWESOME

Edit: so I found out that this is actually the Peirce quincuncial projection. This is the Fuller Projection.
