A Thoroughly Fascinating & Different World Atlas: “NEW VIEWS”

LOOKING FOR A DIFFERENT AND FASCINATING NEW BOOK?  Check out NEW VIEWS: THE WORLD MAPPED LIKE NEVER BEFORE – via this piece at Atlas Obscura

“In 2017, in an era of satellites, big data, and digital maps that appear instantly on your phone, the world can feel very known. New Views, a new atlas by Alastair Bonnett, a professor of social geography at Newcastle University, is full of information about this planet: its forests and undersea cables; its air traffic, ants, migrants, and happiness; its gas prices, guns, and asteroid strikes. This collection of 50 unique world maps—“beautiful, enthralling and thrilling,” Bonnett writes—aims to make us look again at the world we think we know and consider it anew.”
