Description

A compelling exploration of the ways that humans have mapped the world throughout history – now in a compact new edition Map: Exploring the World brings together more than 250 fascinating examples of maps from the birth of cartography to today’s cutting-edge digital maps and reflects the many reasons people make maps – to find their way, to assert ownership, to encourage settlement, or to show political power. Carefully chosen by an international panel of experts and arranged to highlight thought-provoking contrasts and similarities, it features maps by the greatest names in cartography and lesser-known creators, as well as rare maps from indigenous cultures around the world.
