Mapping stereotypes


Sometimes a picture is more eloquent than a thousand words. Well, a map can be too, and the maps by Yanko Tsvetkov proved the point for me. Mapping stereotypes is a project in which he plots on a european map the way we (as British, French, Italians etc...) see the 'others'. The funny bit is that the pictures represent the most superficial, street-level, shallow views we have about our european neighbours...

Below, two maps from the collection: 'Europe according to USA', and 'Europe according to Italy'.
