Many world map images are created to resemble globes. As such, these works are rounded and often show two images, one for each hemisphere. These globe images are popular because they show a more realistic view of the world. These works are also highly diverse in execution and styles range from highly detailed and decorative works like 'Map of the World(antique style) to fairly plain, informational images like 'Closeup of a World Map, 1626' by John Speed.

One of the most fascinating aspects of world maps for art and cartography enthusiasts are the differences between antique maps and modern maps. These works vary considerably and it's fascinating to study how many antique maps are missing areas that modern audiences take for granted. An example of this can be seen in the globe image, 'New World Map, 1676' by Pieter Goos.

World maps are meant to inform and ignite the imagination at the same time. These geographic images show the world as a possibility, something that is so much bigger than the limited perspective that people see each day. As such, many world map fine art focus on themes of adventure and mystery. This is accomplished through a variety of means, including adding imagery and making the map appear older than it is, as seen in 'World Map' Nicholas Visscher.
