Map: Exploring the World will take you on a geographical journey that charts the passions, foibles, and ingenuity of humankind. Large and colorful maps adorn the book’s pages and take the viewer on a voyage of discovery which spans the epochs of many times and cultures. How do humans develop and express their world-views? How do we assert control over spaces? How do we investigate the world around us? And how do we simply find a way from point A to point B? From ancient etchings to smartphone apps, this book will take you on a tour of these questions and how we’ve dealt with them through cartography.
