The world is a complex place full of thousands of different cultural and ethnic identities, but Mapping Stereotypes by Yanko Tsvetkov has a little fun with this fact. By irreverently poking fun at the various prejudices that sometimes can pop up when you stretch six billion people across a vast planet, he creates an amusing and playful work that is not to be missed.
Originally packaged as a wall calender, Mapping Stereotypes by Yanko Tsvetkov is available in continental sections that have different names/colors for each country depending upon which nation’s perspective you are currently viewing. For example, according to Ital’s map of Europe, Portugal, is referred to only as “Brazil” while Russia is called “Gazprom.”
Ultimately Mapping Stereotypes by Yanko Tsvetkov is a decidedly fun collection of calender art so long as you read it in the spirit with which it was written.
