Summary:
"Delve into a curious collection of uncommon maps. On each page, you'll visit a different city. And in each city, you'll explore the metaphorical resonance between the physical metropolis and its inhabitants, history, and culture. In the hands of a creative cartographer, Manhattan is dissected in an anatomical diagram, the streets of Monaco trace the form of a Picasso nude, and the crisscrossing paths of boats on the Bosporus become the nerves of Istanbul. Travel as you have never traveled before, and revel in the details that define urban life. By laying bare the bone, muscle, and sinew of 28 cities, these maps reveal the unique spirit of each one and shed light on the strange and marvelous ways in which humans interact with the places they call home"--Back cover.
