In the world of Google Earth, it is easy to believe that every inch of the planet has been mapped. Happily, this is not true. This book ranges the globe to celebrate the anomalies that still frustrate the cartographer: islands that never existed; abandoned settlements; a secret military town in Russia; and renamed cities whose old identity clings like a ghost. A rich evocation of the strangeness of place, and a must for all map-lovers.
