V29ybGQtV2FyLUktaGFuZGtlcmNoaWVmLUNyZWRpdC1Ccml0aXNoLUxpYnJhcnkuanBn

Major new exhibition looks at the history of the 20th century through its maps for the first time, shedding new light on familiar events, from global conflicts to the depths of the ocean floor – and even the mapping of outer space.
Maps and the 20th Century: Drawing the Line will explore how 20th century maps shaped the ways we see the world we live in.
The exhibition will celebrate the rare beauty and astonishing variety of 20th century maps. From the first sketch of the London Underground from 1931, to declassified Ministry of Defence maps, Ordnance Survey maps from the 1920s, a Russian moon globe and the first map of Hundred Acre Wood.

Maps and the 20th Century: Drawing the Line opens at the British Library on 4 November 2016. From questions of war and peace, to understanding the movements of people, nature, and even the financial markets, it will explore how maps became increasingly present in 20th century lives.
