Persuasive Cartography

“Persuasive cartography" is a term for maps (like the one above) intended  to influence opinions or beliefs rather than to communicate geographic information. More than 500 maps have just been added to the P. J. Mode Collection of Persuasive Cartography at the Cornell University Library.
