Product description

Maphead recounts Ken Jennings' lifelong love affair with geography and explores why maps have always been so fascinating to him and to fellow enthusiasts everywhere. Jennings takes listeners on a world tour of geogeeks, from the London Map Fair to the bowels of the Library of Congress to the computer programmers at Google Earth. From road atlas rallying to the "unreal estate" charted on the maps of fiction and fantasy, Jennings delves into map culture in all its varieties and considers the ways in which cartography has shaped our history.
