4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Midwest Book Review on May 8, 2008
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.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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.

This book is a classic for everyone interested in the art of map making. Imhof was a true genius and the book is a must-have for all students of cartography, geodesy, remote sensing and even GIS.
