Nothing more disappointing than a book with a mappy cover but no mappy content.

If you want a mappy cover with mappy content... buy an atlas... :-)

I'm just always fascinated by graphic design, and the choice to use a map as an element of the design. What emotional response does the presence of a map invoke?
