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.
