Cynthia Brewer is one of the top writers in cartographic visualization, and is perhaps the top expert in the use of color in cartography. The maps in this book are both beautiful and informative. She makes use of both hue and intensity to map two related variables at a time. For example, she shows relative population density as well as changes in density on the same map, making it easy to find, for example, low density areas that are increasing in density. Rather than a reference book for demographers, this is a showcase of great maps.
