I've mentioned hidden euriope magazine here before, but saw this week that their May 2007 issue has three articles that have a cartographic dimension. Details of all three on their website at www.hiddeneurope.co.uk, where some articles are available in full text (as pdf files to download). There is an essay on how place names have varied on successive versions of maps of the Arctic island of Jan Mayen - reflecting the changing balance of Dutch, English, Austrian and latterly Norwegian influence over the remote outpost. Then a nice piece on psychogeography and cartography, exploring places that we have names for (widely used names, often) but which appear on few maps. And a quirky look at a new map of Europe that is due to be published by the EU early next month.
