The Power Of Maps

This volume ventures into terrain where even the most sophisticated map fails to lead--through the mapmaker's bias. Denis Wood shows how maps are not impartial reference objects, but rather instruments of communication, persuasion, and power. Like paintings, they express a point of view. By connecting us to a reality that could not exist in the absence of maps--a world of property lines and voting rights, taxation districts and enterprise zones--they embody and project the interests of their creators. Sampling the scope of maps available today, illustrations include Peter Gould's AIDS map, Tom Van Sant's map of the earth, U.S. Geological Survey maps, and a child's drawing of the world. THE POWER OF MAPS was published in conjunction with an exhibition at the Cooper Hewitt Museum, the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of Design.

Where is the line crossed between faith and madness? Dallas detectives Francisco “Frank” Gutiterra, a long time veteran on the force, and Rick Olsen, his rookie partner and a die hard young “techie,” find themselves at that frightening intersection, while on a case so twisted; it dares to push one or both of them over the edge. An elusive and psychotic mad man dubbed the Mapmaker, claiming to be on a divine mission from God, leads Gutiterra and Olsen to a series of puzzling murders, each committed by equally maniacal killers with a horrible connection to him. The Mapmaker does so, by turning his own victims into “maps,” with their bodies, leading to where each of the crimes occurs. But, the more things the detectives learn about the cases, the bigger the clues-and the insanity-grows with each passing day. With an overly ambitious news reporter complicating matters, Gutiterra and Olsen get closer, or farther, from catching the mad man. But are they ready to deal with what they uncover if they ever find him? Only ‘The Mapmaker’ holds the answers to everyone’s salvation, including Gutiterra’s, or that of the Mapmaker himself.
