Book Roundup

Cartography has a review of Else/Where: Mapping — New Cartographies of Networks and Territories (web site), a collection of 40 essays; my impression is that the contributors come from a design rather than cartographic background.

Meanwhile, on atlas(t), Claire has been having fun reading Mark Monmonier’s new book, From Squaw Tit to Whorehouse Meadow: How Maps Name, Claim and Inflame, which sounds like lots of fun: see her posts here, here and here. If all goes well, I’ll be reviewing this book myself later on; if nothing else, I’m sure I’m going to enjoy reading it.
