Not sure if anyone would find a use for this great big list of books on cartography, but there are a few hidden gems in it. Especially the Mapping Hacks; Tools and Techniques for Electronic Cartography

Cheers,

Wow--Color me stupid, but I never thought of posting the Amazon "map book" search...and it's wonderful!

On the other hand, it's a little overwhelming, too. Can anyone recommend any of these books; who has read & liked or disliked any of these?
