What a fun book!

Plenty of new views of our connected world plus interviews with the authors/analysts/artists (yes, they are all three) who created the extreme maps.

You would think with the advent of cyberspace that maps would recede to the background and go the way of the floppy disk. No. Mapping is transformed and redefined. Interesting discussion of mapping vs. maps.

This should be a coffee table book in every building where intelligent people congregate.

Studying and analyzing visual images like the beautifully produced ones in this book teach scaling, the "real" Greenwich meridian, how maps change with different datum among other things.
The superb quality of the illustrations make this book unique and valuable for introducing students to analytic visual understanding

How is it that someone can rate this book with only one star? This is the best book on the subject mapping I have seen so far. The content is highly conceptual and very profound. It gives you a lot of beautiful images and well-written essays which illustrate the concepts presented very well. A true masterpiece that is wonderfully designed and produced. This is so much better compared to all those books which give you only collections of maps.

Format: Paperback
For a book on mapping the graphics are of extremely poor quality. It's really amazing that advocates of creative mapping would have so few interesting pictures and so little engaging text. There are a few worthwhile pages but not enough to justify the price of the book. I bought it on the basis of a NY Times review without seeing the book. A mistake.
