Strange Maps

Smartphones may have replaced the traditional map for most people, but that doesn't mean there isn't an intriguing world of cartography outside the digital realm. Strange Maps ($20) is a collection of some of the most interesting maps produced throughout the centuries, including Thomas Jefferson's proposal for dividing the Northwest Territory, a map of Thomas More's Utopia, and even a "Jesusland" map based on voter profiles. Who knows — maybe the 17th century map showing California as an island will be accurate someday.
