A draft cover design for a new edited book I am just completing. It reprints 10 'classic' articles on different aspects of cartographic theory and mapping research published over the last thirty years in the journal Cartographica. The articles are accompanied by newly commissioned reflective essays considering the significance of the original ideas. It is being published by Wiley-Blackwell and should (hopefully!) be out by the end of the year.

The main image in the cover design is courtesy of the U.S. Geological Survey's multimedia gallery. The original photograph is from 1957 and is titled 'USGS Mapper at Work'. Apparently, it shows an unamed 'map editor plots General Land Office (GLO) data on a Shaw Mountain, Oregon manuscript'.
