Format: Paperback
A new edition of Swiss cartographer Eduard Imhof's classic provides new audience with a title last published 25 years ago and long out of print. It first provides a historical overview of cartographic relief, discussing early symbols of mapping, teaching techniques in symbology and drawing, and discussing relief features. The 1982 edition was expensive to produce and thus limited: this new volume is affordable and true to its original edition, editing text for clarity and making only minor changes. Any college-level library strong in cartography must have this.

This book is even more incredible than I expected. The art and science of relief representation in black and white and color is explained clearly. The stereoscopic pairs are incredible and this book is a treasure.
