OUTSIDE THE BOX:
The British cartography website Brilliant Maps has a new book out just in time for the holidays: Brilliant Maps for Curious Minds: 100 New Ways to See the World. "Which countries don’t have rivers? Which ones have North Korean embassies? Who drives on the 'wrong' side of the road? How many national economies are bigger than California’s? And where can you still find lions in the wild? You’ll learn answers to these questions and many more in Brilliant Maps for Curious Minds. This one-of-a-kind atlas is packed with eye-opening analysis (Which nations have had female leaders?), whimsical insight (Where can’t you find a McDonald’s?), and surprising connections that illuminate the contours of culture, history, and politics. Each of these 100 maps will change the way you see the world—and your place in it." www.amazon.com/Brilliant-Maps-Curious-Minds-World/dp/1615196250
