Book review.


EUROPE: Dutch cycling map publisher Carto Studio has published a map of the European railway network which is says aimed at 'people who like to travel by train and who would like to follow their own journey throughout Europe.'

The rail network is projected onto a relief background. Lines are shown in categories, including high speed, main, secondary and tourist lines. Tunnel names are given and scenic routes and tourist highlights marked, along with main stations.

The 690 x 990 mm double-sided map includes overview maps of Europe, Scandinavia and Eastern Europe, and larger scale coverage of northwest mainland Europe, Switzerland and northern Italy. There are city maps of Barcelona, Berlin, Brussels, Budapest, Dublin, London, Lyon, Milano, Paris, Praha, Roma and Wien, showing a selection of attractions and metro stops.
