A week or so ago,dirtyfratboy posted a link on digg.com to 'An Interesting Map of Myths and Fairies'. This is a wonderful map designed by Julian Hector and inspired by Jaro Hess and his classic 'Land of Make Believe' picture. The digg article links to a Zoomify viewer which only allows you to see a small portion of the map at a time, so I've assembled a full-size version - just click on the picture above to see it (slow connection warning: 1.8 meg). Apologies for the watermark, but I'm assuming the reason Julian had the map display in a viewer was so that people don't rip off his hard work on this beautiful piece of artwork, and thus I'm also protecting that work, just in a different way. Overall, though, I think being able to see the whole thing, even with the watermark, is better than looking at it section by section, and hope you like it too. And no, I won't email you the unwatermarked file, so don't bother asking.
