Great site to show projection and changes in perception on maps.

This mercator puzzle was especially interesting. It illustrated how various countries look on a mercator map compared to other maps.

Cool activity / puzzle that plays with projection and shows you a comparative view of the "true" size of countries compared to others

This set of 19 short essays (around 3-4 pages each) is a great supplemental text.  I am eager to read them and other resources in the ESRI library.

We've seen a world map made of each country's coins before. Here's another currency map that uses images of each country's bills...And of course I'm going to enjoy this.
