Strange Maps: The Book

If you like maps and you haven’t yet discovered the Strange Map blog, I recommend checking it out.

It’s oddly addictive.

Now there’s a print version — Strange Maps: An Atlas of Cartographic Curiosities.

Included within the book is our very own Country Codes of the World map.

I received a copy this week and plan to dive in this weekend. It’s a big book — with more than a hundred maps. One map that jumped out at me was of the Kentucky Bend — a bulbous little chunk of land carved by the Mississippi river and the New Madrid earthquake.
