I’ve been getting some questions about the forthcoming book release. This is a good sign.
We are putting the finishing touches on it right now. The book cover and a few last minute edits are all that remain. We’ll aim to have it available for purchase–via your book retailer of choice, or through the library, though you usually have to make a special request at your library for a niche book like this–within the next month. A list of map makers who contributed to the the book were listed in a prior post.
For those who already have the Colors For Maps and Type For Maps ebooks, you will be interested to note that this upcoming book will be a print-version of those, plus an extra chapter on patterns (map techniques). The Colors chapter will also have the addition of a CMYK column. The typeface descriptions have been updated in a few cases and a few new font variants are included. So, even if you already have the Colors and Type ebooks, you may want to consider taking a look at this new print book as well.
