Boek cover No Dig, No Fly, No Go van Mark Monmonier (Paperback)
How Maps Restrict and Control
Some maps help us find our way; others restrict where we go and what we do.

Boek cover Lake Effect van Mark Monmonier (Hardcover)
Tales of Large Lakes Arctic Winds and Recurrent Snows

Boek cover How to Lie with Maps, Third Edition van Mark Monmonier (Paperback)
An instant classic when first published in 1991, How to Lie with Maps revealed how the choices mapmakers make--consciously or unconsciously--mean that every map inevitably presents only one of many possible stories about the places it depicts.
