Strange Maps

Funny little blog about cryptogeography.

Odd facts about forgotten places, like the late lamented "Free and Indpendent State of West Florida" and the still-existing state of East Germany (a Cuban island was given over to the DDR, and still is legally owned by East Germany, despite the fact East Germany doesn't even own East Germany anymore).

California as an island? An old misconception. But the old cartographers may have just been ahead of their time; we'll see what happens after the Big One hits.

Good stuff.
