Further information:
"To make this book, I've taken an old school atlas and cut out the map pages and refolded them and stitched them together in a away that there is no beginning or end. The book is circular. The sections can be unfolded. The small photographic images are from another book about life on earth. All organic forms. An atlas is a representation of the planet. We struggle constantly to capture the planet in a form we can understand." Monica Oppen
