I too write books about making maps, Personal Geographies: Explorations in Mixed-Media Mapmaking , and am so gratified to find a kindred spirit in Becky Cooper.

Personally, I am always fascinated by the intervined fates of people and cities, a very classic example of which is "Berlin Alexanderplatz" by the German author Alfred Döblin. Obviously, this book is a completely different take on the subject, and a couple of decades have passed by since, but the general idea that a city has a soul and forms part of the life of people that live in it, is the same concept.
This is probably not a book that you read from page 1 to the end - it invites for a casual stroll, discovering the different maps, and diving in and out. The material and general layout is really nice, so I guess both facts and the above mentioned creative concept behind the book make it a good present for anyone that has a connection to NY.
Overall, two thumbs up for this great project!
