Cartographics : designing the modern map
Hong Kong : Sendpoints, [2016]
Preface / Jasmine Desclaux-Salachas -- Mapping the Physical Environment -- Mapping Human Activity.

We rely on maps everywhere in our daily lives, and their uses are constantly evolving in our rapidly changing world. Cartographics: Designing the Modern Map is a collection of maps that tread off the beaten path of mapmaking and redefine exactly what a map can do. Two sections, "Mapping the Physical Environment" and "Mapping Human Activity," feature maps that depict a wide variety of themes; some incorporate strategies from infographics, such as one that uses abstract depictions of public transportation lines to display riders' travel patterns as well as physical features, while others use traditional strategies to explore contemporary subjects such as geopolitical maps of fictional countries in video games, gentrification in Brooklyn, or the geology of Great Britain. With hundreds of innovative maps from cartographers around the world, Cartographics ushers in a new and advanced age of mapping in which technological innovation, observation, and artistic vision are linked as one.

Early Dutch maritime cartography : the North Holland School of cartography (c.1580-c.1620)
Schilder, Günter, author
Leiden : Brill, Hes & De Graaf, [2017]
This book fills a void, existing currently in the knowledge of early Dutch Maritime Cartography. Before Amsterdam developed into Europe?s most important commercial hub in the seventeenth century, demanding and controlling manufacture of maps and sea-charts, a major School of Cartography already flourished in the so-called 'Kop van Noord-Holland', the region just north of Amsterdam. This School specialised in the production of small-scale charts of larger areas, like European coastlines, the Indian Ocean and the Atlantic Ocean. Its representatives used to call themselves 'çaert-schrijvers' or 'map-scribes' when clarifying their profession. The cities of Enkhuizen and Edam were important trading ports and as such provided an ideal environment for developing into centres of cartography, serving sea-borne navigation. 0Apart from the well-known printed pilot guides by Lucas Jansz. Waghenaer, the output of these 'caert-schrijvers' consists mainly of manuscript charts on vellum. Copies, although few, are nowadays to be found all over the world. Charts were actually used on board for their application in navigation; another category, however, may also be distinguished. These were to serve in offices of rich ship owners and merchants as wall-decoration and source of information. They feature a decorative lay-out and are magnificently coloured. In view of the miniature paintings they sometimes contain, they surely rate among the most beautiful sea-charts ever produced by Dutch Cartography in the Golden Age.
