Can you find beauty in a map?,
This review is from: Historical & Curious Maps + CD Rom (Pepin Picture Collections) (Paperback)
If your answer to the above question is 'yes' then this book is for you. A 'Look Inside' function would have been handy for this book's amazon page to see some examples, but the whole book is essentially a collection of old / rare / eccentric / unusual maps, of cities, regions, countries and the world, all beautifully reproduced in colour. It's a lovely book to browse and dip in to.
The maps themselves seem to have been chosen and presented more from a design point of view than because they carry any weighty significance, but this just makes the collection more diverse.... and curious. Overall, this book is a quirky oddity and anyone (like me) who likes to pore over maps will probably enjoy it.
