Waterstones Says

Revelling in the fascinating facts and ephemera of our planet, Brilliant Maps is a graphic triumph that combines cultural, political and historical trivia with the traditional geographic data. Immensely stylish and tremendously engaging, Wright’s book helps us to understand the world in new and exciting ways.

Which nations have North Korean embassies?
Which region has the highest number of death metal bands per capita?
How many countries have bigger economies than California?
Who drives on the 'wrong' side of the road?
And where can you find lions in the wild?

Revelatory, thought-provoking and fun, Brilliant Maps is a unique atlas of culture, history, politics and miscellanea, compiled by the editor of the iconic Brilliant Maps website. As visually arresting as Information is Beautiful and as full of surprising facts and figures as any encyclopaedia, Brilliant Maps is a stunning piece of cartography that maps our curious and varied planet.

For graphic design enthusiasts, compulsive Wikipedia readers and those looking for the sort of gift they buy for someone else and wind up keeping for themselves, this book will change the way you see the world and your place in it.

“a very appropriate title”

This is an extremely interesting book, full of varied and sometimes bizarre facts, but displayed on world maps. It's one of those books to dip in and out of, to find the answers to questions such as: which... More
