Old Atlases – New Stories (Catalog in pdf)
The exhibition of old atlases from Zadar's libraries and archives is an opportunity to present these valuable cartographic works, which, along with encyclopaedias and dictionaries, were the most important compendia of knowledge. Atlases were often books in which authors had the opportunity to present in one place the latest knowledge about space as well as their cartographic techniques, so they had an important informative, educational, and methodological function. In addition to this utilitarian function, they also had an aesthetic function, so they reflect cartography as a complex discipline in which science and art are intertwined. Therefore, it is always possible to approach any old atlas with new approaches and to invent new stories about it.
