A Map of the World

ISBN: 9783899558814

Author: Antonia Anoniou    Publisher: Gestalten

The world of contemporary mapmaking is brought up-to-date in this revised and expanded edition of a best-selling book. For centuries we have used the tools of cartography to represent both our immediate surroundings and the world at large―and to convey them to others. In our age of satellite navigation systems and Google Maps, personal interpretations of the geography around us are becoming even more relevant. A new generation of designers, illustrators, and mapmakers have been discovering their passion for various forms of illustrative cartography and A Map of the World is a compelling collection of their work. This updated edition contains even more examples of their output, ranging from detailed representations to personal, naive, and contemporary interpretations.
