Conceived and edited by Sebastián Díaz, Lucía Duque, Santiago Muñoz and Anthony Picón, the lines that shape the maps in this book are capable of uniting or dividing, of showing accidents or channels, of faithfully representing the reality of a territory or to falsify it The authors of Entre líneas investigate the purposes that built our maps, discover how these lines influence those who sketch them and the populations they represent.
Cartography not only makes it possible to measure, locate and represent, but also to imagine and build different forms of territoriality and of inhabiting the world. What do the lines on the maps encode, what do they tell us and what do they fail to tell us? This impressive study, in which cartographic representations from the 16th century to the present day are published, brings together historians, geographers, architects, economists, topographers, sociologists, among other researchers, who together compose a little-known, but dazzling and lucid history. , in which the territory and its maps speak in light of imagination, power and time.
