‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’
(The Times, Magnus Linklater 29/06/05)
by Aleksandra Mizielinska & Daniel Mizielinski
Age Range: 6-8
Explore the world with this beautifully crafted, sumptuously illustrated book of 52 detailed maps. The maps are reminiscent of hand-drawn ancient-style maps and are packed with intricate detail.
The inside front cover features the content with a big map of the world together with the page references. This is followed by a map of Europe that leads into a map of each individual European country, followed by maps of Asia, Africa, North America, South America, Australia, Oceania and Antarctica.
Here you will find not only geographical features such as the capital city, flag, population, size and language, but also interesting facts about each country’s native animals and plants, places of interest, iconic personalities and specific characteristics that reflect their identity.
At the back of this large format book there is a double-page spread of all the flags of the world too.
MAPS is a celebration of the World from two of the most innovative Polish illustrators – Aleksandra Mizielinska and Daniel Mizielinski (see their other titles: H.O.U.S.E and D.E.S.I.G.N published by Gecko Press and Welcome to Mamoko published by Big Picture Press). Children can travel the globe immersed in these pages. Hours can be spent pouring over each map and they can be revisited again and again as there will always be something new to find every time.
A remarkable book that should be treasured by any child, and adults might want to keep a copy on the shelf too!
