Keith Thompson’s Caricature Map of Europe
Caricature maps usually belong to a specific period — i.e., the late 19th and early 20th centuries. So it’s interesting to see Keith Thompson’s modern take on a 1914 caricature map of Europe. Via Kottke.
Update (Feb. 3, 2010): This map illustrates Scott Westerfeld’s Leviathan — it’s found on the endpapers of the hardcover edition.
