Standard Mercator
Americentric Mercator
Peters
Goode Homolosine
Gnomonic Octahedral
Werner (heart shaped)

    Unfortunately for me, much of this ground was covered in the awesome “How To Lie With Maps” which Rob got me for my birthday (happy to lend anyone for more on Peters and other projections).

    Mind you his follow up, From Squam Tit to Whorehouse Meadow How Maps Name, Claim and Inflame looks ace too.
