“What could be more delightful–and unsettling–than turning loose a group of contemporary surrealists, disguised as vagabonds and artists, in the ripe fields of the hyper-real? Experimental Geography isn’t about space; it is about terminal strangeness.”
–Mike Davis, author of City of Quartz and Ecology of Fear
"Living in cities, we need a new way to think about how we move and what we notice… This strange, exciting book offers just that–a new way to notice public space. It is the brainchild of Nato Thompson: the results of his fascinations with urban planning post-Katrina, abandoned or unnoticed urban landscapes and public art."
–Susan Salter Reynold, Los Angeles Times
"We know that a book touting ‘radical approaches to cartography’ may not set your pulse racing, but the playful and probing diagrams in Experimental Geography–including a map of the last half-century of arms trades that scribbles out just about the entire globe–ought to at least get your mind melting."
–Jonathan Messinger, Time Out Chicago
