Europe Stereotyped

by Christopher Paul on September 22, 2010

Like it or not, we all have our own stereotypes. I don’t look at stereotypes as good or bad – just data that should be taken with a grain of salt or a statistical generalization that might not always be applicable. But almost always, stereotypes have their own – and come from – a unique personal or cultural point of view. And that’s the premise of these maps.

Each map is color coded and labeled from a certain point of view. In the map below, for example, you can see what America generally thinks of Europe.

The designer who put these together, Yanko Tsvetkov, has more maps like Europe According to France, Europe According to Italy, Europe According to Germany. You get the idea.

See those maps and more here.
