For a limited time only, order your copy at the special price of £30* (RRP £35). 

A fascinating, lavishly illustrated celebration of cartography, featuring charts, maps, globes and atlases.

The map collection at Royal Museums Greenwich comprises about 40,000 maps, charts, globes and atlases, covering a time period from the thirteenth century to the present day.

Curator of Cartography Dr Megan Barford explores the variety of stories hidden within the collection, highlighting the materials, techniques, makers, users, genres and features, to reveal 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 collection as it's never been seen before.
