History of the World in 12 Maps by Jerry Brotton

I’ve always loved maps, but previously knew very little about the history of cartography, so I found this fascinating. While clearly delineating the technical advances of the great cartographers Brotton discusses the political, economic and/or religious objectives that distort all maps. This is a perfect book for map lovers, history buffs and fans of well-researched non-fiction.
