Such pretty colors, and such interesting repercussions!

This Polish electoral map of 2007 echoes division between imperial German and imperial/soviet Russia. It's a fascinating study of how contingencies in time represent themselves in space, and how pretty colors and lines on maps can highlight these contingencies and tell us a thing or two about a thing or two.

The blog post highlighted above is much more articulate about the specific time and space considerations involved, trust me.
