Theatre of the World: The Maps That Made History [9781473688629]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

'Visually stunning...it's gone straight to the top of my Christmas present list.' The Bookseller

'I remember how well I liked to turn the pages of my childhood atlas and travel the world to find out where countries and cities were. But there was never anything about why the maps were created - or who drew them. Theatre of the World was my big chance to tell the stories of all those men and women map makers whose amazing work deserves to be celebrated.' Thomas Reinertsen Berg

Beautifully illustrated and rich in detail, Theatre of the World reignites our curiosity with the world both ancient and modern.

Before you could just put finger to phone to scroll Google Maps, in advance of the era of digital mapping and globes, maps were being constructed from the ideas and questions of pioneering individuals.

From visionary geographers to heroic explorers, from the mysterious symbols of the Stone Age to the familiar navigation of Google Earth, Thomas Reinertsen Berg examines the fascinating concepts of science and worldview, of art and technology, power and ambitions, practical needs and distant dreams of the unknown.


AUTHOR: Thomas Reinertsen Berg (born 1971) is a journalist and writer. He has written for several Norwegian papers such as Morgenbladet, Klassekampen and Dagsavisen, where he has worked especially with cultural and scientific subjects.
