A Is for Atlas
A sumptuous, lavishly illustrated celebration of cartography, including charts, maps, globes and atlases.
The map collections at Royal Museums Greenwich comprise about 40,000 maps, charts, globes and atlases, covering a time period from the thirteenth century to the present day. Curator of Cartography Megan Barford explores the variety of stories which are hidden within the collection, involving the materials, techniques, makers, users, genres and features, to understand more about the different worlds in which maps were produced and consumed.
From imperial rule to labour solidarity, and from sumptuous display to scrap paper, A is for Atlas presents the Royal Museums Greenwich map collections as it's never been seen before.
