Carto-Kitchen®

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.

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...
