"Senghor on the Rocks"

A good book has a wonderful power to allow its reader to travel to new and unseen worlds; "Senghor on the Rocks" by Christoph Benda lets the reader get a vague glimpse of the setting of his novel--Dakar, Senegal--with the help of Google Maps.

The entire book is geotagged. Each page of "Senghor on the Rocks" is accompanied by a Google Maps satellite image of the area. The German novel was originally written by Christoph Benda between 2002 and 2005, but was later adapted for its present geotagged online format.
