Chapter Four, “KMMS World Maps Primer” aims to make the KMMS maps ‘legible’ to the general reader. It discusses the forms that make up the classical Islamic KMMS map of the world and elaborates the matrix of places and spaces that overlay each world map. The purpose of this chapter is to enable readers to familiarize readers specifically with the KMMS maps so that they can follow the deeper discussion and analysis of the KMMS maps that constitutes the heart of this book. The chapter provides a rich array of KMMS images, most never published before.

Keywords:   KMMS, Panofsky, map analysis, mimesis, orientation, mappamundi, map manipulation
