great writing, only fair illustration photos. 8 Dec. 2013
By NYmom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I founf this book to be b=very well written, with a generous number of map illustrations, except the maps were all way too small to actually read! I am not certain what the solution would be, as it is not a huge book to begin with, yet the maps wer not even photographed that well, thus what I might have been able to read if pics were clearer4, became impossible to read at this poor quality. I did get the general "appeal" and style of each map, but as an artist, and someone who looks for detail, it was rather frustrating, Information was great, and it turned out to be a delightful book, too bad the images didn't live up to the writing. Kept as a unique reference book.
