Pub Note: 
Large wall map in nine sheets which, when joined, measure 278cm x 381cm. Shows the worldwide routes of the Scandinavian Airlines System. Shows celestial constellations and scenes of people around the globe. Similar in scope and style to the large Boucher world maps for Air France (see our 10284.000 and 10163.000) and the TWA world map (see our 10164.000). The map's maker, artist Jørleif Uthaug, sculptor, painter, and graphic artist, (1911-90) was a spearhead and trail blazer in modernistic abstract art in Norway. He created works of art for cruise liners, hotels, schools, municipality buildings, in materials as varied as stone, wood and glass mosaics, steel, brass, iron and canvases of various sizes. See http://www.uthaug.net/jorleif/english.php for more information on him. The map uses a special map projection by Dr. A. Refsdal, although we could find no information on it.
