Book Review: Strange Maps

Strange Maps: An Atlas of Cartographic Curiosities by Frank Jacobs is based on Frank's phenomenal blog dedicated to the discussion of... well.. strange maps. I remember when his blog, Strange Maps, started and thinking it was cute. Now Frank has massed a gathering larger than most American third parties and ready to rival the other two for dominance. While the last bit was a joke he definitely has found a niche for a very large, active internet community.

The book primary is based off maps featured on his blog. The easy to read page discussions of each map make it this book a perfect coffee table book able to entertain guests and create discussion. This is a good gift for any map lovers this Christmas season.
