Story

Following the contemporary revival of fascination with cartography — both practical and radical — Map compiles charts of varying presentation and intent, exploring the full range of interpretation that a two-dimensional recreation of space can achieve. With over 300 maps, ranging throughout history, both scientific and fictional, Map presents the artistic and informational value of humankind's ongoing efforts to make sense of the world we inhabit. Included maps chart political histories, demographics, weather patterns, storybook forests, and the human brain, on formats from sticks and shells (nautical map of the Marshall Islands) to wood cuttings, to lithographs and digital prints.
