Note: I received an advance copy of this book for free from the publisher. I offered that I would review the book if I liked it. This publisher knows how to design books for designers. It includes a multitude of illustrated maps, both historic and contemporary, from a variety of mapmakers. This would be enough to make the purchase worthwhile, but the text goes beyond that with a healthy dose of history, how-to material, and explanatory text about the showcased pieces.

Save Save. See more images here. We are really proud of this book and the 74 artists represented within it! From maps as art to data visualization maps, and of course plenty of illustrated maps! Surely, an oversight on their part.
