Can you always believe what you see on a map? Is a map always a true reflection of the ground beneath our feet? This work invites the reader to take a closer look at maps, and to discover that there is often more to a map then meets the eye. For example: the secret 1926 map of London which illustrates the government's fear of a revolution during the General Strike; and the 1695 map of paradise, which attempted to reconcile science and religion by locating the position of Noah's Ark, or where Jonah met the whale. These maps and many more are discussed in this illustrated book.
