Map Quests - The New York Times
As the daughter of a geography professor, I grew up in a house filled with maps, which papered the walls of our living room and filled my father’s cramped study. In a digital age where maps have become all but obsolete, I still love them. I comb flea markets and secondhand bookstores looking for old maps of the places I’ve lived. I always have a road atlas in my car, which comes in handy in places with no cell service, like the remote hollows of the Blue Ridge Mountains. And I collect atlases of all kinds and spend far too much money on them.
