STRANGE MAPS ATLAS - by Frank Jacobs. - An Atlas of Cartographic Curiosities.
- An intriguing collection of more than one hundred out-of-the-ordinary maps, blending art, history, and pop culture for a unique atlas of humanity Spanning many centuries, all continents, and the realms of outer space and the imagination, this collection of 138 unique graphics combines beautiful full-color illustrations with quirky statistics and smart social commentary. The result is a distinctive illustrated guide to the world. Categories of cartographic curiosities include: • Literary Creations, featuring a map of Thomas More’s Utopia and the world of George Orwell’s 1984
• Cartographic Misconceptions, such as a lavish seventeenthcentury map depicting California as an island
• Political Parody, containing the “Jesusland map” and other humorous takes on voter profiles
• Whatchamacallit, including a map of the area codes for regions where the rapper Ludacris sings about having “hoes”
• Obscure Proposals, capturing Thomas Jefferson’s vision for dividing the Northwest Territory into ten states with names such as Polypotamia and Assenisipia
• Fantastic Maps, with a depiction of what the globe might look like if the sea and land were inverted
The Strange Maps blog has been named by GeekDad Blog on “one of the more unusual and unique sites seen on the Web that doesn’t sell anything or promote an agenda” and it’s currently ranked #423 on Technorati’s Top 500 Blogs.
Brimming with trivia, deadpan humor, and idiosyncratic lore, Strange Maps is a fascinating tour of all things weird and wonderful in the world of cartography.

Gdzieś spotkałem w sieci stronę innego autora poświęconą kuriozalnym mapom - będącym bądź propagandową ironią, wynikiem specyficznego podejścia do kartografii, bądź też próbą wyrażenia za pomocą własnej konstrukcji mapy - dowolnych skojarzeń, przesłanek, czy zabawą... W odniesieniu do map historycznych - będącą też ewidentną pomyłką... Jeśli odnajdziecie tą, lub podobne strony - podeślijcie nam linki...

"This map, from the German/Austrian publisher A. Hartleben, dating from the early 20th century by the look of it, presents a map of the range of anthropophagy, both contemporary (in red) and historical (in yellow)."
