K. I. Kordig (fl. c. 1880) was a Russian illustrator and cartoonist active in the latter part of the 19th century. Kordig is an elusive figure of which little is known. His primary contribution to cartography is a reprisal to Fredric Rose's 1877 Serio-Comic War Map of Europe. Where Rose represents Russia as a grasping and menacing octopus, Kordig, presents Russia as an angelic figure ready to defend its people against the moral bankruptcy and chaos of Western Europe.
