About the Author

Martin Vargic is an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia who rose to international fame in late January 2014, when his work 'Map of the Internet 1.0' went viral, generating hundreds of thousands of hits and Facebook shares. His first book, Vargic's Miscellany of Curious Maps, pulled together more than 1,800 cliches and pop culture references into a series of maps based on stereotypical views of the world. It too received immediate media attention, and was prominently featured on a multitude of sites such as Slate, Huffington Post, Radio Times and many others.

Reviews

5 ***** In more than one hundred pages filled with facts and illustrations he takes the reader on a journey through the history of the cosmos * BBC Sky at Night *
Packs in so much of our astronomical knowledge, so many tidbits about the history of astronomy and space exploration that I felt wonderfully enriched by it all. The book managed to surprise me in so many different ways. It is visually striking and beautifully illustrated * Dr. Alfredo Carpineti, writer for @IFLScience *

Martin Vargic's maps of the world look like they belong on parchment, hung on walls of estates that no one can really afford . . . but there's more to the world than piles of dirt and great swathes of sea water . . . his cartography creates an indirect commentary on how cultural proximities are every bit as relevant in the digital age as geographical ones. * www.bostonglobe.com *
Weird and wonderful * www.mirror.co.uk *
