Product Description

Review

‘A richly evocative set of meditations on landscape and vision by a master craftsman. The essay format – a much neglected literary form in contemporary human geography – suits Cosgrove to perfection as he sketches and speculates, provokes and probes. Across myriad times and spaces, he displays for us the kaleidoscope of meanings that we humans have attached to the terrestrial sphere. Each essay is a delightful creation fashioned by an artist whose eye is informed throughout by a profound geographical sensibility.’ -- "David Livingstone, OBE, Professor of Geography and Intellectual History, Queen’s University, Belfast"
