Good morning cartotalkers,

I have just received a very nice book on maps published by the University of Chicago Press a couple of weeks ago. MAPS is edited by James Akerman and includes essays on maps and their different functions and purposes, way-finding, world maps, imaginary worlds, mapping American history etc. Renowned authors (Matthew Edney, Denis Cosgrove, Susan Schulten, the Frenchman Gilles Palsky among others) give as an account of maps as a form of universal communication. For more details, see the website @ http://www.press.uch...i/00/235201.ctl

Best wishes

Jorn Seemann :rolleyes: :rolleyes:
