Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
Explore the globe, take a trip to outer space, time-travel through history, and then find your way back to your coffee table with Phaidon's 'Map: Exploring the World' (£39.95). Arranged in thought-provoking pairs, this collection of more than 300 maps compares the different ways that cartographers have tried to make sense of the world around us. From an ancient Chinese astrology chart to the moon-map used to land Apollo 11, this celebration of cartography is about much more than getting from A to B. Some more esoteric examples include a representation of London’s cholera epidemic to an early infographic of Mount Vesuvius’s lava flow. You’ll never look at Google Maps in the same way again.
