Cartography—Rick Britton believes that computer generated cartography is acceptable for some purposes but if the topic is history the accompanying maps should be illustrated as they were in the past—by hand. He employs the same techniques and symbols used by map illustrators in the 18th and 19th centuries. The result is cartography with the “feel” of history, cartography that is more relevant—and valuable—to the book in which it appears.
