Join us as Cornerstone Publisher Ben Brusey asks the authors to delve into the global impact of Covid-19, our understanding of which has so far been largely shaped by maps – from the spread of the disease and the level of testing, to the impact of our global response including pollution levels, a decline in travel and even the fact that the world is literally quieter. Ian and Rob will reveal some of their most fascinating learnings about how our world has changed this year, in ways big and small that have impacted us all.
We’ll be asking Ian and Rob about their fascinating, inspiring and visually dazzling book Terra Incognita, and in what ways the content can be brought up to date for future publications.
