Terrestrial Tales 100+ Takes on Earth
|Marc Angelil ; Cary Siress
A collection of representations of the globe over the last 2,000 years, the book ‘Terrestrial Tales’ serves to not only open up a discourse on how we see the world but also show how our world is constructed as a compendium of divergent or competing narratives that shape and confirm our view of it – and with that, our own self-image. Each of the illustrations is supplemented with a short description. Taken together, they juxtapose the everyday with the exotic, and the scientific with the artistic, resulting in a highly diverse historical cross-section of human imagination, insight, and progress. An essay by authors Marc Angélil and Cary Siress complements and contextualises the collection.
