Created for map lovers by map lovers, this book explores the intriguing stories behind maps across history and illuminates how the ancient art of cartography still thrives today.

Based on interviews with scores of leading cartographers, curators, historians, and scholars, this is a remarkable selection of fascinating and unusual maps--some never before published. This diverse compendium includes ancient maps of dragon-filled seas, elaborate maps of hidden worlds from inside Earth to outer space, devious maps created by spies, and cutting-edge data-based cartography showing the ebb and flow of modern cities.
