“A Korean map made in 1402 and drawing heavily on Chinese sources. Moving from right to left we have Korea (with a tiny Japan below it) followed by China and India shown here as a single body with Sri Lanka to its bottom left. To the far left are the African and Arabian pennisulas. Africa is depicted with a massive internal sea, possibly based on rumours of Lake Victoria.”
Very detailed information here and on wikipedia.

Some people look at cold metal type and see words to print on paper. New York artist Hong Seon Jang looks at metal type and sees a miniature cityscape. Labyrinth, a current exhibition of Jang’s installations is on view at the David B Gallery in Denver through June 16th. Among his contemporary works on display, Type City is Jang’s sprawling metalopolis seaport made of tall lead type buildings and boulevards bisecting the city into a topographic and typographic landscape. With the patience of a skilled hand typesetter, he set the tall buildings of metal type upright so they are capped with individual letters.
