Our brains are built for maps, say National Geographic bloggers Betsy Mason and Greg Miller. "They are one of the best tools ever invented for illustrating and exchanging ideas." In this visually fascinating book, Mason and Miller delve into the stories behind maps from a wide variety of cultures, civilizations, and time periods. Here you'll find ancient maps of dragon-filled seas, elaborate graphics picturing forces inside the earth or in outer space, devious maps created by spies, even maps from pop culture realms, like the schematics of the Death Star and a map of Westeros from Game of Thrones.
