Wonderful. Matthew Bloch, the graphics editor at the New York Times, has "a collection of accidents that happened while working on maps and other graphics." Here, for instance, is a "1917 map of Beijing (after trying to use spline-based georeferencing in ArcGIS)."
And something has gone dreadfully wrong with this map of electoral votes:
I can't quite put my finger on it, but there's something disconcertingly plausible about the chaos of these images. You know what I mean? As if the maps weren't just defective representations, but accurate representations for someone who's actually mad.
They're delightful, at any rate.
