Strange Maps is a blog that documents interesting maps including a Japanese world map circa 1850 that places Japan in the center of the map, as opposed to Europe. There is also "the world's largest map," maps on Afgani rugs, a map of the Portuguese empire (pre 1974 Carnation Revolution), a map of known ship wrecks in the Atlantic, a map that presents global levels of wine consumption by displaying countries as a grape cluster, a highly detailed map that conflates human anatomy with the American transportation system and oh, too many fun maps to mention. Just take a look.
