Worldly Wednesday

Not my usual reading fare, but it caught my eye and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
On the Map: A Mind-Expanding Exploration of the Way the World Looks by Simon Garfield.

He looked at all kinds of maps, and the history, and forgeries and it was an interesting way to look at the world.

This led me to look for other books on maps, mostly I’m interested in the history and variety of maps.  But here are some books that look interesting:

Maiden Voyage by Tania Aebi
Scale of Maps by Belén Gopegui
Nautical Chart by Arturo Perez-Reverte

What would you suggest?
