Letter from Katia Plewnia, Okapi
Regarding ‘The floating signifier’ (Eye no. 53 vol. 14, p.40), we do not know if you have been on the Continent lately, but last time we checked Luxembourg -- and not Lichtenstein -- was on the borders of Belgium, France and Germany. As graphic designers ourselves, we know how difficult it is to draw maps correctly, so no offence -- we feel with your designers. Thank you for the wonderful article, anyway.
