A few weeks ago, Taylor and I spent the evening over at our Aunt's apartment. We opened a few beers and proceeded to the basement where she has one of the most impressive book collections outside of an actual library.
I didn't spend too much time with any one book, just a quick flip-through to get the general gist of the content, and if it merited a more thorough review. I found a few great photographs, collections of photographs, and some beautiful layout designs. And then I found this one.
It is a massive book; I could barely pull it off the shelf! I spent quite a bit of time looking through the pages of old maps and illustrations. There was a lot of Latin, directional lines, some beautiful compass roses, and an abundance of exploration imagery. Just look at Poseidon holding up that giant shell!
