Having triumphed with Just My Type, an illuminating guide to type fonts that made many best sellers and best books lists, Garfield returns to show how maps both reflect and shape human history. Over 100 maps and illustrations and thoroughly Americanized by Britisher Garfield, with new sections.

"This is a smart, funny, accessible book that does for typography what Lynne Truss's bestselling Eats, Shoots & Leaves did for punctuation."
