What is a map? How have people been drawing the world throughout history? What do maps say about us?

In Theater of the World, Thomas Reinertsen Berg takes us from the mysterious symbols of the Stone Age to Google Earth, exploring how the ability to envision what the world looks like developed hand in hand with worldwide exploration. This fascinating tale of science and strategy, art and technology, power and ambition, practical needs and distant dreams of the unknown, tells a new story about world history and the people who made it.

We encounter visionary geographers and heroic explorers along with the unknown heroes of the mapmaking world, both ancient and modern. Theater of the World is above all a celebration of the extraordinary men and women mapmakers whose work has made history.
