Parution : Chet Van Duzer, “Frames that Speak: Cartouches on Early Modern Maps”, Leyde, Brill, 2023

This lavishly illustrated book is the first systematic exploration of cartographic cartouches, the decorated frames that surround the title, or other text or imagery, on historic maps. It addresses the history of their development, the sources cartographers used in creating them, and the political, economic, historical, and philosophical messages their symbols convey.

Parution : Maryanne Cline Horowitz et Louise Arizzoli (dir.), Bodies and Maps, Leyde, Brill, 2020
