300 stunning maps from all periods and from all around the world, exploring and revealing what maps tell us about history and ourselves.

"Map: Exploring the World" brings together more than 300 fascinating maps from the birth of cartography to cutting-edge digital maps of the twenty-fist century. The book's unique arrangement, with the maps organized in complimentary or contrasting pairs, reveals how the history of our attempts to make flat representations of the world has been full of beauty, ingenuity and innovation.

Selected by an international panel of curators, academics and collectors, the maps reflect the many reasons people make maps, such as to find their way, to assert ownership, to record human activity, to establish control, to encourage settlement, to plan military campaigns, or to show political power.

The selection includes the greatest names in cartography, such as James Cook, Gerard Mercator, Matthew Fontaine Maury, and Phyllis Pearsall, as well as maps from indigenous cultures around the world, rarely seen maps from lesser-known cartographers, and maps of outstanding beauty and surprising individuality from the current generation of map makers.
