Metropolis: Mapping the City

A sumptuous volume exploring the development of mapping, the imagination and the representation of the city: from Renaissance Venice, to Amsterdam in the 17th century, to New York in the 20th century and beyond. Jeremy Black's informative and accessible text includes detailed captions of over 150 maps, including skyline profiles, bird's eye views, panoramas, schematic maps of transport networks and statistical maps. Focusing on key points in the development of urban representation and including past visions of the future, this enlightening book illustrates how cities around the world have evolved but also how each map's design reflects its purpose.
