From skyline profiles, bird's-eye views, and panoramas to the schematic maps of transportation networks—and statistical maps that can provide information on human aspirations—cities can reveal themselves in many ways. Focusing on key points in the development of urban representation, with vintage visions of how people of the past thought we would be living today, this enlightening book includes illustrations of some of the oldest, youngest, liveliest, and most contested cities in the world. Jeremy Black's captions explain the relevance and appeal of each map, as well as the logic between its purpose and design.
