Map room treasures from Oxford

Well, since the holidays are only 1 nod away (at least it feels like it when autumn kicks in) I thought it could be useful to help you with some map inspired gift ideas. We’re starting off with this beautiful book just published in Oxford: ‘Treasures from the Map room’. I know from first hand that the map room of the Bodleian Libraries holds some very beautiful treasures, such as the awesome map below (I wrote my thesis on cartoon maps during my masters programme in Oxford).

But, lets get back to the wishlist for the holidays this year. Check out this beautiful publication, edited by Debbie Hall. You might want to add this to your personal wishlist!
