A Karamanlidiko map of the Americas

16 Sep

From Annia Ciezadlo, author of the delicious and also extraordinarily moving Day of Honey: A Memoir of Food, Love, and War (which I advise you not to read until you’re certain that there’s decent Middle-Eastern food in reasonable proximity to where you are, because otherwise the cravings it creates will kill you), and via someone on Tumblr called “glykosymoritis” — “sweet gangster”? comes this map of the Americas in Karamanlı, the Greek script that the Turkish-speaking Christians of central Anatolia used to write Turkish in.
