The Atlas of Food from the University of California Press makes a great choice for atlas of the week for our class. I found this atlas to be a great choice, as with every map there is a story that goes way deeper than anything you could see on the map. Food is very interesting when it comes to this, as depending on whether a country is developed, developing, or undeveloped the food will be completely different in all of these scenarios leading the viewer to gain knowledge. This has been a heavy focus in class, understanding the significance of the map and what it implies, which is why this atlas has a lot to teach us.
