Alaska5000 and Brazilian Inflated View

Just a couple map postcards from my carto-friends:

Michael5000 recently did the cruise-to-Alaska thing and very thoughtfully send this postcard to me:



Steve sent this postcard to me that he picked up in Belo Horizonte, Brazil? It is for the Casa Bonomi, a bakery/café. It gives us one of those "inflated views" with the nearby Río Amazonas, and then the islands of Cuba and Greenland off in the distance, not far from Norteamérica:



Thank you, Steve and Michael!

Mr. Carto,

I was unable to leave a comment on your other blog, and have a question about the >50 states star-pattern generator: what's with 87?

Thanks.

You are referring to "The N States of America" At Vexillophilia:

I don't know why you could not comment... I think Blogger may be having some technical issues.

Why no 87? Slate gives no explanation. Obviously you can fit 87 stars in, but it appears that mathematically, they do not fit in to the algorithim of the tool.
