    Hvad er et kort? Hvordan har vi mennesker tegnet verden op gennem historien? Hvad fortæller kortene om os selv?Verdenskort handler om kortenes utrolige historie. Thomas Reinertsen Berg tager os hele vejen fra stenaldermenneskenes mystiske symboler frem til Google Earth i en fascinerende beretning om videnskab og verdensbilleder, om kunst og teknologi, om magt og ambitioner, om praktiske behov og fjerne drømme om det fremmede. Undervejs møder vi visionære geografer og heroiske opdagelsesrejsende sammen med korthistoriens ukendte helte. Historien om Norge og det øvrige Norden danner en rød tråd gennem bogen, og et fantastisk billedmateriale giver læseren mulighed for at fordybe sig i både den nordiske og den internationale korthistorie. Verdenskort vandt Brageprisen for bedste norske fagbog i 2017. Bogen er rigt illustreret. Thomas Reinertsen Berg (f. 1971) er journalist og forfatter. han har skrevet om kultur og videnskab for adskillige norske aviser.

  • - The History of Maps and the Men and Women Who Made Them
    af Thomas Reinertsen Berg
    30,69 kr.

    'Fascinating...sumptuously produced with lots of full-colour images, is a kind of potted treasury of cartographical history that gleams with pieces-of-eight-like snippets of information...this is an enthralling book, and joins the likes of Simon Garfield's On the Map and Jerry Brotton's A History of the World in Twelve Maps in the field of popular reaffirmations of the ingenuity of geography.' Travis Elborough, Spectator'A fascinating book that I will always treasure.' Sir Ranulph Fiennes 'This wonderful book is a reminder of how much careful thought was given to the shape of the world even in ancient times - the landscape, how places are related to one another. I pored over these maps for hours, imagining those minds hard at work, visualising how it all connected as a whole. Just brilliant.' Neil Oliver'Visually stunning...it's gone straight to the top of my Christmas present list.' The Bookseller'I remember how well I liked to turn the pages of my childhood atlas and travel the world to find out where countries and cities were. But there was never anything about why the maps were created - or who drew them. Theatre of the World was my big chance to tell the stories of all those men and women map makers whose amazing work deserves to be celebrated.' Thomas Reinertsen BergBeautifully illustrated and rich in detail, Theatre of the World reignites our curiosity with the world both ancient and modern. Before you could just put finger to phone to scroll Google Maps, in advance of the era of digital mapping and globes, maps were being constructed from the ideas and questions of pioneering individuals.From visionary geographers to heroic explorers, from the mysterious symbols of the Stone Age to the familiar navigation of Google Earth, Thomas Reinertsen Berg examines the fascinating concepts of science and worldview, of art and technology, power and ambitions, practical needs and distant dreams of the unknown.
