In this cartogaphic celebration, Akerman and Karrow show that maps both record and and make history, backing up their claims with 198 color stunning plates drawn from ancient times to today. From clay tablets to sea charts, from satellite navigation systems to tantalizing sketches of worlds real and imagined-maps tell us much more than how to get from where we are to where we want to be. They help us visualize the places we inhabit, see and study the unknown, understand our place in the world as it is and shape it for the future.
