A superb look at the history of cartography. Johnson begins with some of the oldest known maps and ends with some of the most up-to-date technologies used in mapmaking. In the middle the ways that map making has evolved over the centuries are addressed. This is a wonderful resource for research or for anyone who is interested in this topic.
This book could use LARGER maps. The images are so interesting, but they are so small and hard to see. That's a shame.

We also enjoyed the mapping book "Small Worlds" by Karen Young. Small Worlds: Maps And Map Making
