Mimicking the format of a standard World Atlas, ‘The Inversion of the World’ portrays a planet where all land and water on the earth’s surface have been reversed. The atlas contains reproduced full colour maps including two fold-out 3 page spreads, distribution maps showing the political, religious and economic ramifications of the inversion, a revision of the moon, a complete index and a preface by Christopher Dewdney. English and French text.
