Since this hand-atlas was published in 1899, cities have changed names and new countries have emerged. As with the world, Francisca has created her own world. Inspired by the particular colour palette of this German version, in this world, the most important cities of the time such as Budapest, Rome, Berlin, London and Paris are all linked up and the atlas index has become its perimeter.
