1. Martin Vargic is a 17-year-old artist from Slovakia who specialises in creating intricate maps drawn from modern data and pop culture.
The Map of Literature is featured in his new book, Vargic’s Miscellany of Curious Maps: Mapping out the Modern World.
2. Vargic told BuzzFeed: “The Map of Literature is a graphical visualization of how the world’s literature evolved from the ancient era to the present day.”
“Different periods and genres of literature are represented by distinct entities (‘countries’) on the map, that unfold from the centre and show the gradual evolution of the various genres.”
