A series of world maps that emphasize Earth’s oceans over the continents. Reminds me of something I read a few years back about the reenforcing colonial effect of the way maps are drawn, with Europe up top and at the centre. Can’t find the one I’m thinking of but How the north ended up on top of the map and Five maps that will change how you see the world thread similar ideas, and the second one has a West Wing scene embedded so bonus points there.
