The Cartography Design Annual #1 book is now available for purchase!

Go to www.cartographyannual.com for all the details and to buy it.

Over the next few weeks I will be publicizing the book, so look for it out in the wild. In 6-8 weeks it should also be available on Amazon.com, I'll let you all know when that happens.

Enjoy!

The book looks great! I wonder how much it would cost to mail my copy around the world to have every contributor sign their page? :)

I don't know who all of the contributors are, but I'm guessing you could save some money by coming to the NACIS meeting in Missoula this October and getting signatures there (in person!). ;)

You would have to send it all around the U.S., Canada, The Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, and Australia.

nick, you should consider a personal promotional tour. I can take care of the Hawaii logistics. That list looks like it would be a fun trip.

Just curious - is this a limited print run, and then how many copies, or is this print-on-demand?

I just ordered a copy (Thanks Nick!) and it seems to be a print-on-demand service through LuLu.

I am awfully curious about the quality and the service of the print-on-demand. It seems to be a great way to self-publish.

I've heard some good things about them, so I'm quite looking forward to getting my copy as well.

Adam, I'll be in Missoula for NACIS and probabely in the Seattle/Vancouver area after that for a couple of days. I have some friends in Anacortes that I'll be visiting. Would be happy to sign your copy. In fact, I think it's a cool idea and will bring mine as well.

Just wondering, Nick, whether you could post a list of contributors and map titles here?

The book is in fact printed on-demand, and I am amazed at the quality. You would be very hard pressed to tell the difference from an offset print.

I have updated the original post with an image of the table of contents.

Yes indeed, a whole new world. I've even got a project in-hand now, to create a wall map for a map store in Canada. They have a large 42" printer in-house, and they'll print the map on demand for the customer. There's just not enough demand for this particular product to go the offset route, but print-on-demand is a fit.

Nick,

Trying to order one of these, but LuLu says it's not available. :(

What's up?
