Homer, James Joyce and Frederick Forsyth all draw literary maps.

Psychologists construct mental maps, while cosmologists chart the Alice-in-Wonderland world of black holes and space/time. Future maps will be seen not just on walls or in books but as a four-dimensional reality on a computer screen. Producer Daniel Snowman
