Product description

Review

On Map Addict:

'Mike Parker offers an exhilarating celebration of the humble map.' Mail on Sunday

This excellent book on the pleasures of maps and navigation, which is also a withering attack on the infantilisation of the satnav age’. Daily Telegraph

‘A highly engaging and thoughtful, haphazard and personal, meander around maps and map-related arcane.' Daily Mail

'This eclectic, funny and warm book should be on the shelves of everyone who has spent hours staring at a map.' The Great Outdoors

'A witty entreaty to leave the satnav in the car, and to head for the hills with the Ordnance Survey.' BBC Country File magazine
