Yanko Tsvetkov, visual artist, graphic designer and illustrator, has been at it again producing more mapping madness and cartographical curiosities. The man behind the map of Europe according to the Hungarians has produced another crop of somewhat subjective maps of Europe, where the United Kingdom comes under the headings of The Union Of Subsidized Farmers (Where I Live), Mummy (according to the USA), Slayers Of Virgins (according to France) and Enigma Code Hackers (according to Germany). Apparently.
Here’s a couple of examples; Europe According To The USA …
… and Europe According To The French.
Head over to his mapping stereotypes project page for the rest. It’s mapping, but not as we know it, and as Yanko aptly puts it, “a sense of humour is highly recommended“.
