On the Map

Why the world looks the way it does. Nominated for the Waterstones Book of the Year 2012 and Specsavers National Book Awards 2013

The author of "Just My Type", which sold more than 100,000 copies, returns with a book about maps and cartography. Takes in culture, history and more as it looks at all things mappy from the earliest charts to Google Street View and videogame map-creators. Explains where we've been, how we got there and where we're going. Now in paperback, this was a "Sunday Times" bestseller in hardback and a Radio 4 Book Of The Week.
Portrait

Simon Garfield is the author of more than a dozen acclaimed books of non-fiction, including the international bestseller, Just My Type: A Book About Fonts, and a trilogy of edited diaries from the Mass Observation Archive, which includes the bestselling Our Hidden Lives. He lives in London and St Ives, with old maps lining the walls.

Zitat
"'Garfield has a genius for being sparked to life by esoteric enthusiasm and charming readers with his delight.' (Iain Finlayson, Times) 'Simon Garfield's new book is a rollicking sweep through map history, packed with curiosities and written with verve... a great book.' (Mark Wilson, Independent on Sunday) 'Garfield allows his varied, expertly researched stories to speak for themselves, and in so doing helps us see that there are fewer things in life more useful, rewarding and beautiful than a map that does what it's supposed to.' (David Clack, Daily Telegraph) 'Garfield's genial prose twinkles with the delight of discovery' (Tom Hawker, Wanderlust)"
