The British Library
A disorienting collection of diverting, map-themed quizzes - all inspired by treasures of the British Library’s cartographic collection. Hundreds of intriguing questions themed around 40 inspirational maps give a unique perspective on world history. From the 1550 world map of Pierre Descelliers and a map of the Moon from the US Geological Survey, to medieval portolans and modern day digital renderings. Fascinating city maps, celestial and sea charts, literary and statistical maps, curiosities and even fake maps combine to pose increasingly difficult questions requiring general knowledge, observational skills, cryptic dexterity and mapping history knowledge. Each map is faithfully reproduced with a description drawing out the context of its creation and significance.
