His first book Vargics Miscellany of Curious Maps pulled together more than 1800 clichęs and pop culture references into a series of maps based on stereotypical views of the world. It too received immediate media attention and was prominently featured on a multitude of sites such as Slate Huffington Post Radio Times and many others.5 ***** In more than one hundred pages filled with facts and illustrations he takes the reader on a journey through the history of the cosmosPacks in so much of our astronomical knowledge so many tidbits about the history of astronomy and space exploration that I felt wonderfully enriched by it all.
