Buisseret (history of cartography, Newberry Library) uses some 300 color and b&w aerial photographs, satellite images, rare historic illustrations, and maps to recreate the story of Illinois over centuries of growth and change. The great cartography draws attention to the not-so-great (though fascinating and instructive) aerial and ground photos. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
