any nuggest in there? I have read (at least partly) most of the older ones. How is the Kraak & Ormeling book?

In my bookshelf, though, is only the Tufte ones and "How to lie with maps" (from the list)

Your professor missed "Cartographic Relief Presentation" by Eduard Imhof (1982). I think it is a must read for topographic junkies...

I came across Edward Tufte's recommended reading list online the other day. Someone who had been to his conference posted it along with a page of notes:

Some interesting choices:
- "Understanding Comics" - I can see the link between comics and maps, they both have limited space to convey a lot of information
- "Maps and Civilization" - I have this one but found it hard to get through. Maybe I should give it another go.

I must recommend Cynthia Brewer's 'Designing Better Maps'. It is written for GIS users but it covers essential cartographic design rules. It includes chapters in map design, Type, and very valuable information about colors (her specialty).

For around $20.00 I think is a great investment ;)

A really good introduction to the concepts of cartography is Mapping by David Greenhood. I send my new employees home with it.

Amazon: Mapping

A little-known reference on thematic mapping (symbolization, classification schemes, etc.) is Mapping Information: The Graphic Display of Quantitative Information by Howard T. Fisher. Probably best to find this in university libraries, though there's a (pricy) copy on bookfinder right now.
