Great Maps: a book to look out for

Great Maps by Jerry Brotton (August 2014)

Here is another beautifully illustrated book to look out for: Great Maps (by Jerry Brotton), from Dorling Kindersley and the Smithsonian. I have no review, but Wired reports some of the wonderful and historic maps in the book.

The book appears very well designed, combining large two-page spreads, such as the one below, with detailed “zoomed in” images of particular map features. I’m certainly on the lookout for a copy!
