Mapping European Stereotypes

Geopolitical cartography is all about an objective view of the world’s political conventions. But there’s nothing politically correct in Bulgarian-born, London-based designer Yanko Tsvetkov‘s Mapping Stereotypes project — a series of amusing, often tragicomically true maps of Europe based on various subjective perceptions and ideologies.

Italy According to Posh Italians

Europe According to Bulgaria

Europe According to Britain
Where I Live

Tsvetkov’s maps are available for purchase as prints, mousepads and t-shirts on Zazzle.
