In an atlas, every nation has a unique shape, and its own place. this ideal atlas gives each country a poetic colour, too; a colour both random and rooted - a moment of its existence. Topography, plants and animals, language and history combine in the amazingly differentiated, luminous spectrum of the world. Here, the 196 nations shift amongst each other; distinctive, complementary, surprising and unifying. Latitude and longitude are the lines of poems, climate is a thought, and commerce deals in sense. This Atlas is Made in England, but in its common language, it celebrates difference.
