Why North is Up – Mick Ashworth

Artwork Slide

Tue, 15 October 7:00pm

A fascinating exploration of the world of maps and map-making – its history, evolution and latest innovations. Mapping expert Mick Ashworth reveals how accepted conventions of orientation, scale and colour developed from the very first representations of place to the hyper-detailed cartography we use today. Accessible and elegantly written with extensive illustrations Why North Is Up is a colourful and vibrant celebration of the signs, symbols and science of map-making.
