The fascinating stories behind 60 of the world’s greatest maps
Great Maps superbly illustrates maps from all around the world, analyzing each map visually with the help of pull-outs and graphic close-up details. It traces the history of maps chronologically, featuring key cartographers and telling the story behind each map: why it was created, who it was for, and how it was achieved. This amazing guide draws together navigation, propaganda, power, art, and politics through the world’s greatest maps.

"[A] visual treat…as much an art book as it is an archaeological history lesson as it is a collection of the world's most fascinating and significant maps." – BoingBoing
