Slovakian artist Martin Vargic rose to international fame in 2014 when his "Map of the Internet 1.0" went viral, portraying Google, Yahoo, Microsoft, Amazon, and Apple as sovereign countries. Here the clever cartographer returns with the "Map of Stereotypes," a cartogram based on a westerner's stereotypical view of the world, assigning more than 2,000 labels and pop culture references to cities, countries, and continents on a large-scale world map. Along with eight exquisite and unexpected conceptual maps, Vargic includes an additional 50 mini-maps displaying a diverse list of data, from the probability of getting struck by lightning and the NSA surveillance rate, to the number of heavy metal bands per capita and number of tractors per 1,000 inhabitants.
