The introduction includes the story of the solar system and the history of map-making. Maps of regions and oceans bring faraway places to life, with illustrated geographical and architectural features, people plants and wildlife, from oil fields to Buddhist monks to the Amazon Rainforest. Fold-out booklets reveal fascinating facts about each region. Your guide is earth enthusiast and TV presenter Nick Crane. Your map-maker is artist David Dean.
About the Author: Nick Crane is a cartographer, explorer, writer and well-loved television presenter. As a child, Nick explored the Norfolk countryside armed with a bicycle and a map; ever since, he has been journeying the world. In 1992-3, he walked 10,000 kilometers across Europe, from the Atlantic Ocean to the Black Sea. He lives with his family in London.
About the Illustrator: David Dean is a full-time illustrator who travels the world from the comfort of his own studio. He paints in a room surrounded by books from many different cultures, which inspire his exotic and colourful work. In his spare time, David enjoys walking and taking photographs of the countryside near his house in Cheshire.
Full of fascinating, slightly alternative details, will make your children yearn for foreign climes, occupy them on the way there, and give them an inkling about what to do when they arrive.

An unconventional beauty. Land masses are divided into regions, not continents, which makes sense, especially in a place as vast as Asia. Maps in a palette of purple and gold feature not a grid of latitude and longitude lines but icons of animals, landmarks, and manmade features, such as the Rubik’s cube invented by a Hungarian professor.
Budding geographers of 7+ will relish World Atlas.
