Next Living in Nyon event – Tuesday 10th November at 19:30
Diccon Bewes presents his new book – Around Switzerland in 80 Maps!
A map can be decorative or informative, or both, and can reveal geography or history, or both. In fact, it is the perfect pictorial way to explain and entertain. And this collection is no exception. From the circular Swiss island of 1480 to a vision of a Greater Switzerland with 40 cantons, via the oldest map of Lake Geneva, Around Switzerland in 80 Maps takes you on a truly magical and fascinating journey.
