The current offering represents a followup to a slew of recent map-art blogposts by Giorgio Coniglio and Dr. GH. With all this mental energy focusing backwards and forwards on palindromes, it is hard to avoid the subject of canalsAnd to help wordplay-buffs focus on palindromes about canals, here is an ancient blogpost on the subject: CANALINDROMES
