London in Maps: a changing perspective, published by The GeoInformation Group as part of the London Mapping Festival 2011 – 2012, is a truly fascinating collection of a diverse range of maps of the capital, probably the most mapped place on earth.

The book is a testament to the variety of the cartographic art and provides many excellent examples of how cartography has developed to meet the requirements of an expanding and rapidly changing city – from the earliest attempts to map Elizabethan London to modern, digitally produced utility mapping survey by Radio Location and Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) techniques.

From its wide range of sources the book illustrates just about all the different types of mapping: historical maps and satellite imagery, plans of present day shopping malls and Victorian Booth poverty maps, aerial photography and humorous representation of the capital by artists., etc. Many famous cartographers and publishers are included, among them mapping both from our founder, Edward Stanford, and from our present day colleagues who produced a series of London Borough maps. A brief history of Edward Stanford Ltd is included on page 192 among the list of the contributors.
