If you love maps as much as I do, you will love this blog I found recently. It’s called Strange Maps and every few days a new map is posted. These are not your run of the mill Rand McNally. They are strange for a reason: whether it’s a genetic map of Europe, a map of the forgotten state of Absaroka (yes, it did exist!), or a map of Canada made out of cheese, you will find it here! I couldn’t help spending countless hours reading these posts the other day. Not only are the maps fascinating, the blog author provides detailed explanations (to the best of his knowledge) and analysis… and sometimes even mini-history lessons of the region and/or time.
