But maps need not show just continents and oceans: there are maps to heaven and hell ; to happiness and despair ; maps of moods, matrimony, and mythological places. There are maps to popular culture, from Gulliver's Island to Gilligan's Island ; speculative maps of the world before it was known ; and maps to secret places known only to the mapmaker. Artists' maps show another kind of uncharted realm: the imagination. What all these maps have in common is their creators' willingness to venture beyond the boundaries of geography or convention. This book is a wide-ranging collection of such superbly inventive maps. There are charts of places you are not expected to find, taking you on a voyage of the mind: an exploration of the ideal country estate from a dog's perspective ; a guide to buried treasure ; a trip down the road to success ; or the imaginary world of an inmate of a mental institution. With over one hundred maps from artists, cartographers and explorers, this book gives the reader a breathtaking view of the world, both real and imaginary.--Cover flap."@en ;
