Although I have a Kindle which I find great for general fiction reading, I still see so many books that just don’t translate well from physical book to e-reader and ‘Maps’ is a wonderful example of that. A beautiful coffee table book, ‘Maps’ is more than just an atlas, each page is a work of art crammed with information such as a mini drawings of famous landmarks and figures as well as depictions of traditional costumes superimposed over each country and interesting facts such as popular names, foods and sports also represented. Even the usual (if rather dry) statistics you’d expect to find in any decent atlas such as population, flags, capitals and languages are given the same level of stylish attention as the rest of the book. It’s not really a book you read from cover to cover but I love to flick through it and each time I do, I find something new to look at. Definitely a book I can never see ending up at the Charity shop.
