One for the Road: London - A Life in Maps
A recent New York Times article highlighted this book, as well as additional cartographic titles that have been published lately. As the author notes in his piece: "Unlike calendars and telephone books, maps combine form, function and fantasy, a potent blend that might explain a recent surge in books on cartography and the continuing effort to humanize the contours of the earth." We've mentioned several of these map books already -- a plethora of grids and lines that have directed (or misdirected) explorers, city dwellers and nomads through the years.
