Advance praise for The Island of Lost Maps
"Just like the most elegant of the maps at the center of this intricate tale, Miles Harvey’s impeccably written guide to the extraordinary and unsung
obsession of the cartomaniac is intriguing, beguiling, and refined. And as with the best of maps, the more one looks, the more fascinating and intriguing it all becomes."
–Simon Winchester, author of The Professor and the Madman
"The Island of Lost Maps is an intriguing literary adventure story, written with flair, imagination and precision. By re-creating the journey of
a strange and remarkable map thief, author Miles Harvey takes readers on a compelling exploration of the weird world of maps."
–Susan Orlean, author of The Orchid Thief
