A sentence that fascinated me in Turchi’s ‘’Plus Ultra’’ chapter is: ‘’For a very long time, mapmakers have not started at the beginning’’ (p.220). I have never thought about it that way. A map has no beginning or an end. For example, when you draw a world map you can start with drawing Africa or South-America there is no real beginning on a map. Map makers don’t have to have a beginning when they start drawing.
