'The Map Book' By Peter Barber
This week I received the newest issue of Wired in the mail. Believe it or not it's a pretty good rag relating to technology and other cool stuff, but in the December issue they review a new book of compiled maps plainly called "The Map Book." Editied by Peter Barber, the head of the British Library's map collection, the book has 175 items highlighting 3,500 years of cartographic progress. Wired gave it 5 out of 5 bars. From my observations, the Wired team likes maps. Of course, who doesn't?
