The Awe of the Arctic

A Visual History


This book is not yet published, but will be available from July 2024.

ISBN: 9783775748070 Category:


A co-publication with The New York Public Library on the occasion of its 2024 exhibition The Awe of the Arctic, this richly illustrated catalogue with its groundbreaking scholarship is the first to survey five hundred years of Arctic imagery. The presentation ranges from sixteenth-century explorers who attempted to capture the perceived strangeness of a remote region to contemporary artists whose work conveys the human impact on its changing climate and landscape. Collectively, the essays explore a trove of books, prints, photographs, maps, and artifacts depicting and representing the various nationalities and cultures that have shaped our understanding of the polar north and the peoples for whom it is home.
