Reviews - What do customers think about The Agile Rabbit Book of Historical And Curious Maps (Agile Rabbit Editions)?

Great book  Dec 31, 2007
There are no descriptions on the pages and I LOVE that (the descriptions are in the back). I love wondering what each one is. After my daydream I flip to the back to see what it is or if I'm right. My husband and I love maps and we really enjoy this book. The CD-ROM included is also great.
 
A good choice  Dec 27, 2007
The book was purchased as a gift and the recipient was very pleased with it. He indicated that he had been looking for books of maps without much luck. He appreciated the selection and variety of maps as well as the graphics.
 
Lovely book for all map lovers!  Nov 20, 2005
The Dutch Pepin Press publishing house is well known for its books graphic design and visual communication. This is the first time they turned to maps, and the début is really wonderful.

The book contains more than a hundred maps of all kind - antique maps of lands, cities, or journeys, geographical, political, theological, and even humorous maps. The book is well printed and a real pleasure to hold in hands. The CD with all the maps is a real gem, hi-res images allow for the readers to explore many maps in great details.

The only real minus is that the book has 0 (zero) information on the maps, besides the title and (sometimes) the year of publication. It is not an academic study in any sense, rather, it 's just a lovely and inspirational compilation of really interesting maps.
