The Official Carto-Home® is currently in disarray as we are "re-doing" the kitchen: Crumbling walls being repaired, new electric circuits, re-painting old cabinets, and new tile on the floor.

Have no fear, our Carto-Cat® is not dead... he's just big boned.

I tried to convince Mrs. Cartophiliac® to consider a map-tile map mosaic on the kitchen floor, but it was a no go.

The best I could do is talk her in to Carto-Dishtowels®

The "Mercator Projection Dishtowel" does not actually appear to be a Mercator map of anything, but looks good anyway.

What? She said no to map tiles?? She's fired :-)

e towel seems to be the east coast of Australia near Woy Woy, but the longitude seems a little bit off. Probably from a very early survey.

It also looks upside down or backwards...

I am disappointed by Mrs.Carto's lack of tiling can-do spirit. Maybe you could slip in a map of Colorado or Wyoming or Saskatchewan without her noticing.

Shhh... don't tell her... I'm already stenciling in Cheyenne, Estes Park and Saskatoon on to the tiles...

This reminds me of these boxer shorts I saw: http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/st-8OEu8wpXt0A2Xu9IHaw?feat=directlink
