The Mapmaker's World
A Cultural History of the European World Map dives deep into the exciting history of the European world map and the very creation of our own worldview, as the earth was first depicted in maps. In doing so it opens up a fascinating narrative of discovery and cartography, relating not only to geography, trade, ideology and political power, but also to the histories of art and science: what do historical maps tell us of our own perception of the world, and of places and people that are foreign to us? Who were the makers of these early world maps? How were these precious objects created, and for whom were they drawn and printed? For what purposes were they used and what kind of information did they pass on?

Til Vestisen
A sealhunting vessel leaves the Northern city of Tromsø for the annual culling of seals. On board is a crew consisting of hardened hunters; all male. On board is also a young, female, recently graduated veterinarian. There is a conflict of gender here, an
undercurrent that is still very much present in Norway.
The men onboard resent Mari for various reasons, but one of the reasons is that she is a woman.
She represents a threat to their group dynamic; to their (hitherto) unquestioned behavior. And so she is gradually and psychologically worn down. It is fiction, but elements of the book are based on accounts from real inspectors.

You Wouldn't Want To Be In The First Submarine!
Hate tight squeezes and cold, wet spaces? If you don't get stuck sliding down the hatch, you'll still wind up wading through ankle-deep water in ridiculously cramped quarters. And if you don't pump fast enough, that would could reach your neck - or higher! Then forget about traveling on the 1st submarine.
