We've persuaded Routledge to do a paperback version of our 2009 edited collection Rethinking Maps. This was only available as an *expensive* (over-priced!) hardback and, yet, despite the £90 price tag the small print run did sell out. The pb version should be out in May and cost about £25 - some details are here.

I also worked on them to do a decent cover, replacing the bland blue corporate default they employ on all books in this series. I wanted them to use a 'blank' map in homage to the illusory mapping in The Bellman's Speech of Lewis Carroll's famous poem The Hunting of the Snark. Shown left is Routledge's cover design and they kinda don't really get the concept behind the 'blank' and have plonked the main text in the midst of the map. ho-hum...

More details on the contents of the book - which are unchanged - can be found on my blog post from July 2009.
