If you’re thinking about giving someone a map-related gift this season, I’ve put together a list of nine books about maps that have gotten a certain amount of attention over the past year. I’ve deliberately picked books whose appeal extends beyond the geospatial industry (i.e., no GIS manuals or tech books). I haven’t seen all of them, but I’ve reviewed three (and still have to finish reading the fourth); they seemed interesting when I blogged about them at the time. Think of this as a look back at 2009 in books (via income-generating Amazon affiliate links, natch). Any other suggestions?
