About the Book
This book uses a collection of 18 maps focusing on Holderness, Yorkshire to illustrate changes in cartographic style over a dynamic period in European history. Featuring reproductions of maps by John Speed, Emmanuel Bowen, Joan Blaeu, John Tuke, Thomas Kitchin, Robert Morden, L J Waghenaer, and more, the book offers the opportunity to study beautiful maps of the same area as a way of finding excellence in information display. Additionally, the maps act as a window into the changes wrought by coastal erosion as the loss of villages to the sea on the Holderness coast is illustrated by a comparative examination of the maps. Included in the book are photos of this beautiful and hidden part of England.

I live in San Francisco with my cockapoo, Sonny. I am a photographer and photo restoration artist. I feel that long-term storage of photos is best implemented on paper and Blurb books of old photos are the best way to preserve our photographic heritage.
