Ce N’est Pas Le Monde (This is not the World) by Denis Wood and John Krygier – Pooja Mevada

In this book the authors are talking about definitions of map and how a single map could be represented in different ways without influencing the core information, though there are different interpretation about what maps are.

The comic is produced to advance the argument that maps can be understood semiotically as collections of propositions of the form “This is there.” The answer to the question, on the next page, is obvious—”They’re maps!” it says maps are not representation but proposition.
