I'm having trouble locating a poorly designed cartographic product for a small paper I have to write comparing "good" and "bad" map design. Does anyone have any good suggestions? I've looked on the web and can find maps with a couple of bad elements, but I would really like to find an awful design so I'll have more to write about.

Thank you!

I had to do similar comparisons while getting my Masters. We always were able to find some truly appaling maps in scholarly journals. Even in geography journals, sadly. Sounds like a trip to the library is in order.
