Description:
The world's most fascinating maps explored and explained

Great Maps takes you on a journey through the history of maps, from ancient maps such as medieval mappa mundi to Google Earth. Each map provides a window into the age in which it was created and the world view at the time, as well as showing you what was known and unknown by people of the period.

Great Maps includes over 55 maps from all around the world, from the first mercator atlas to the latest world maps, visually analysing each one with the help of graphic close-ups. You'll discover the story behind each map, why it was created, who it was for and how it was achieved and uncover how maps draw together navigation, propaganda, power, art and politics. You'll also be able to explore a fascinating overview of cartography through the ages and profiles of key cartographers and explorers, such as Juan de la Cosa, who created the beautiful maps that remain with us today.

Great Maps is perfect for map lovers, students and armchair explorers of all ages.
