As a young child I would draw world maps over and over again, always starting with Alaska, following the coastline down and round the Americas, and then repeating for Europe/Asia, then Africa, then Australia. I'd then fill in all the islands and the country borders. Hours of fun!
So, I'm always on the lookout for books about maps and there are two brilliant ones out at the moment. Atlas of Remote Islands was voted Germany's most beautiful book recently and is indeed a stunner with lovely drawings and descriptions of the eponymous islands. Map of a Nation is the story of the UK's Ordnance Survey, the invaluable geographic record of this country.
I've also thrown in You Are Here, one of my favourite books that takes the notion of mapping to previously unthought of levels.
