Cartophiliac = One who loves maps
I don’t pretend to have coined this term. I’m not sure who did. Fifteen or so years ago, I subscribed to a newsletter that I think was called Cartophilia*. It’s publisher was a collector of maps and map memorabilia. I think he collected primarily post cards and the like, much as I do. But the point was, he was a collector of affordable maps. I love antique maps, but I could never afford to collect something like that. He inspired me in my own collection, which you will read about on these pages, if I don’t bore you completely to tears.
Merci Christophe 😉
