This has been simmering in my bookmarks for a while, and I thought I’d just quickly post it here before I forget. On the Library Of Congress site, an fully scanned version has been made available of Geographical fun : being humourous outlines of various countries, with an introduction and descriptive lines by Aleph. This is a collection of 12 caricature maps, poking fun at the typical traits of certain European countries. They’re not as politically insightful as other examples, but they’re quite fun nevertheless.
