Inflated Britain

Add this to the inflated views file.

Last month, The Earth is Square blog reminded me of this map, that I first saw on Strange Maps.

The Tory Atlas of the World (warning, details of this map are not politically correct):



You will need to click on this image to view the larger version (in order to catch all the detail).

Chad at EIS did not identify the source, however SM remembers it from a book published by the Spitting Image satirical British television program during the 1980s. This map was making farce of the Thatcher régime, and a nationalistic-right-wing-British-centric view of the world.

Damn! There's a lot of "New Yorkers' view of..." satirical maps out there, but I've never seen one quite so... aggressive before. "Strong Meat," as they say in Inflated Britain.

Your drawings have a very nautical/atronomical feel. Thanks for sharing the link.

It came through on one of my mailing lists. So I have no idea where it originally came from :) I keep forgetting about strange maps.. I have looked at that blog since December :\
