Reddit » Cartography by /u/almostthenewestdad - 6d ago

Hey everyone,

I've always found maps to be visually appealing but I realized that I really don't know much about the history of cartography.

Can anyone recommend me a book or two or eight that covers the history of cartography? If not a history, that's fine. I'm really just in the mood to read all things map.

I appreciate your help!

The NACIS site seems to refer to it in the present tense, and the site which was for a long time available in a frozen state, is now replaced with a static page indicating it's database is being upgraded. This is since May 2nd, according the wayback machine. Interesting! This was a great resource.
