Who hasn’t been fascinated by the names on a map, or stopped a spinning globe with their finger? Humans still long to discover what maps can tell us about ourselves, and the potential they hold to tell us about the rest of the universe.


In an age in which digital maps are accessible at the touch of a button, it is easy to forget our reliance on centuries of hard-won knowledge. From the far-reaching wisdom of Ptolemy to Percival Lowell’s survey of alien waterways on Mars, the cartographer’s stories spring to life in this fascinating chronicle by two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist John Noble Wilford.
