World of Maps combines modern cartography with a glance at the globe hundreds of years ago. Arranged geographically, historical map sheets of different provenances and from different epochs are shown next to modern maps that were created digitally. Thus today's map meets its match from yesteryear. This concept offers a unique way to provide navigation in space and time, and permits interesting comparisons. In addition to famous masterpieces, less accessible treasures of the map making art are also shown. An opulent atlas for cartography enthusiasts and a fascinating journey around the world and through time.
