We here at Librairie D&Q really liked Simon Garfield's last book, Just My Type, which told the story of fonts and profiled their creators, so we're also pretty excited for his newest one: On The Map.

Subtitled A Mind-Expanding Exploration of the Way the World Looks, On The Map tells the stories of maps , focusing on their creators and curators and their cultural significance today. The Guardian  called On The Map "...a survey of some of the most intriguing and thought-provoking moments in map history, narrated with a level of detail, colour and liveliness of which the most ambitious mapmaker would be proud."
