expressitinthesouthpassage asked: Would you have any recommendations for books about cartography or that arent about cartography, but have gorgeous maps?

I’ve listed a few books on the new resources page. Of these four, I’d recommend Blaeu, Atlas Maior if you’re strictly interested in antique maps (and are a fan of Joan Blaeu’s cartographic work), and Maps: Finding Our Place In The World, if you’re interested in maps spanning the eras, as well as, extensive text focused on cartography. If you’re interested, more so, in contemporary, avant-garde, or maps in the abstract vein then look into books like The Map as Art or From Here To There: A Curious Collection from the Hand Drawn Map Association.
