Hilarious Maps for a Ridiculous World

The joys of the world, one terrible map at a time – this is the ultimate gift book for the budding geographer or anyone who wants to have a laugh.

Ever wondered about the average jean colour across the United States? Or what ‘pedestrians’ look like in Denmark? What unites Brokenwind, Upton Snodsbury and Crackpot? And have you ever tried to take a train in Antarctica? Well Terrible Maps is the book for you!

Put together by the creator behind the tremendously popular social media feed, this is the ultimate humour book for the budding geographer in your life. From the longest fence on earth (the Dingo Fence in Australia), to the different names for football around the world, Terrible Maps follows in the footsteps of the likes of bestsellers Crap Towns, Crap CVs and Crap Taxidermy, in celebrating pointless cartography in all its glory. Don’t leave home without it!
