Antarctic Atlas: A Continent in 70 Maps (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Remote, evocative and romantic, the frozen continent holds a unique place in the psyche of humanity. It is a world apart. Separated geographically from warmer lands by the cold and tumultuous waters of the Southern Ocean and separated in our mind by just as wide a chasm. Antarctica is different to other continents; it has never been permanently inhabited and has no native population. Many parts of the interior are still pristine; a rare quality on this ever more sanitized and urbanized planet, and although becoming rarer, there are still a few places where human feet have never trod, vistas that no eye has yet seen.

Peter Fretwell's pioneering maps reveal every knowable facet of this isolated land, from the life of an iceberg to the adventures of penguins and albatrosses, from drowning coasts to unimaginable blizzards, deep water conveyors and the realities of the not-so-distant future.

Peter Fretwell is a senior scientist at British Antarctic Survey where he works in the Mapping and Geographic Information Centre. His scientific maps visualize complex datasets, conveying their intricate message in stimulating and understandable ways. He has made over 2,000 maps for, among others, the last two 'Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change' reports, magazines such as National Geographic and major books such as the Time Atlas of the World. His maps grace the walls of ministers, royalty and the crypt of St Paul's Cathedral. He has been awarded the Bartholomew Prize for best map from the British Cartographic Society and the President's Prize from the Remote Sensing Society.
