Just before Christmas Theatre of the World was pre-empted by Hodder & Stoughton in the UK and Little, Brown in the US. This has now lead to auctions in Germany and Poland. And offers are in from China!
Rupert Lancaster, Non-Fiction Publisher at Hodder & Stoughton said about the book: ‘I am addicted to maps so I couldn’t be more delighted to be publishing Theatre of the World. I love the idea that the history of maps is also a history of ourselves and the way we choose to see the world. We’re honoured that author Thomas Reinertsen Berg and the Northern Stories agency have chosen Hodder & Stoughton and Little,Brown US to be the English language publishers of this award-winning book.’
