Mapping Stereotypes

May 27, 2010 by     16 Comments    Posted under: Design

Excellent work by the Bulgarian graphic designer Yanko Tsvetkov, a quick glance on Mapping Stereotypes, a series of maps and packed with pre-judges representing Europe seen by the French, Italians, Germans or the Bulgarians. Update (18/02/2011) – I’ve updated the image gallery with more maps. You can find the author full World Map series here. Now it’s also included a funny “Europe according to Silvio Berlusconi” version.
