Propaganda Maps


Here is what I think must be the most famous example of a propaganda map(from 1934) -

(By the way, it is from the very fine Ptak Science Books website. If you've got a few hours to surf around, go for it - the guy's a genius.)

So, I wonder if anyone knows of any other propaganda maps. It doesn't have to be of a wartime sort - just one with "an agenda."

Re: Propaganda Maps


I know this isn't what you mean, but this is one of my favorite "maps" which is a composite satellite image of the earth from space. There could be political statements made about this map. Civilization or pollution is where the light is for instance.
This is a good thread and I will look thru some books that I have at home and post more.

Re: Propaganda Maps


There are some good ones on this site.

http://sun-bin.blogspot.com/2008/11/...and-italy.html

This is a propaganda map by a Japanese around the time prior to the 1905 Russo-Japanese War (but the language used was Chinese and English), In the English text on the top left corner Ohara depicted Russia as the "Black Octopus"
Note the antenna of the Octopus going through Manchuria into Lushun (near Dalian today).

From the same site.

Koreans made this map, allegedly in response to some Japanese derision that they are rabbits.
