‘The veneration of trees, known as dendrology’, states Lima, ‘often is expressed by the axis mundi (world axis), world tree, or arbor vitae (tree of life). These motifs, common in mythology and folklore from around the world, have held cultural and religious significance for social groups through history and indeed still do.’ This genre-bending collection of tree maps, ‘an extended introduction’ to designer and researcher Lima’s previous book Visual Complexity, demonstrates the usefulness of branching and rooting images to visualize and absorb complex information and the painstakingly beautiful delineations of cosmologies, genealogies, and taxonomies that generations of artist/scientists have been moved to create. Most remarkably, the book also shows the ancient lineage of the navigational and visualization tools that pervade our digital lives today.
