Details

Taking its title from the Flemish cartographer Abraham Ortelius’s celebrated atlas of 1570, Theatre of the World follows the development of map-making from prehistoric rock carvings through the Renaissance to the digital age. Illustrated in colour throughout, it demonstrates how maps reflect our growing knowledge of the planet and our technical ability to chart its features. It also addresses the questions of who made the maps, on whose behalf, and what world-view they express.
