17.03.2012 The Mapping Stereotypes project was presented in the Crest Edition of the Times of India, which (as you can probably guess) is the biggest English language newspaper in the world. Indian journalist Gintanjali Dang made me remember my childhood passion for drawing and coloring maps.

If the political commentary of these maps drives home the point for even a fraction of the billion visitors who’ve inundated Alphadesigner’s site then borders will continue to become porous and stereotypes more recognisably fallible.
