This extraordinary book provides a cartographic overview of the city of Dublin. It’s not a street atlas. Instead it looks at the city as a series of individual themes, so the structural working of Dublin can be better understood.

This extraordinary book provides a cartographic overview of the city of Dublin. It's not a street atlas. Instead it looks at the city as a series of individual themes, so the structural working of Dublin can be better understood. Each page covers a single view of the whole city at a common scale covering a single theme or subject, so that patterns and inter-relationships can be appreciated.

The maps deal with tangible things such as social class, economic status, politics and religion and also hidden things such as geology, drainage, water and electricity supply. It deals with the past, providing a comprehensible picture of how Dublin developed over time. Its principal sections cover the history and development of Dublin; its physical structure and function; its utilities and services; its administrative areas; its politics; and its people broken down by population, social class, religion, education, ethnic origin and other sociological factors.

This exceptional visual work does for Dublin what the Atlas of the Great Irish Famine has done for its subject.
