World Cities: Yesterday and Todayby Michael Swift
World Cities Yesterday and Today presents a selection of beautiful maps that are often works of art themselves. They provide a window onto an older world where cities were confined by fortified walls and were much smaller than today. The maps are accompanied by modern satellite imagery that demonstrates how these older cities have sprawled outward into the huge urban landscapes we know today.
