To mark Mappery’s birthday, Steven suggested we all post a special one! Maps in the Wild often feature in drinks marketing on branded glasses, bottles of wine, or cans of beer. There’s even
a beer from the Bristol Beer Factory which has got a map covering where I live, which I’m especially fond of (both the map and the beer that is!).
But for the Mappery Birthday post, I went for this one. It is only on close inspection that you realise the map of the world is made up of probably a few hundred beer glasses each mounted to the wall on their own individual bracket. I pity the poor soul who had the job of putting up those brackets. I’m guessing they finished the work and treated themselves to a drink from the Panama Canal .. glass that is! Its the only empty bracket!
Many thanks to Steven and Ken for creating Mappery and for all your hard work delivering a bit of fun to map fans around the world! Mappy Birthday 🙂
