We are looking for cool posters of an internet map for our office walls. We are a technology consulting company so that seems like the right kind of decoration. Since this is for a company office Server Fault seems like the right place to ask.

I have seen interesting network maps as conference shwag, but where do I buy them?

You might try browsing the CAIDA site. Making cool maps of the Internet is their job.

XKCD has two very nice internet maps: IP space and online communities. It's not entirely fresh anymore, though.

The TeleGeography Global Internet Map is the best I've found, and it's up-to-date (2011), but it's extremely expensive ($250).
