ADFAS presents: The Printed Map, its story as an art form. With Robert Clancy

  • ADFAS Fitzroy Street Tamworth Australia (map)

This lecture is about the transition of the printed map, from a highly decorative production with little accuracy, to a more austere document of great accuracy. From the great Incunables of the 15th century, the travelogues of the mid 16th century, the magnificent Dutch atlases of the 17th century, to the school atlas of mid 1850, and the specialist thematic and topographic maps thereafter. Beautifully illustrated, this lecture reflects the milestones of history
