This Primer Manufacture (PM) belongs to a collection set up by the Institute of Cartopology. The collection is an assembled compilation consisting of heterogeneous material related to cartopology in a particular way. Each PM is self-contained and simultaneously belongs to and supports the Forms of Expression.
The collection of PM’s is numbered and structured by sort, type and origin to retrieve a specific PM easier. To recognize a PM, there are two questions to answer: How does it relate to the cartopological context? and, what is the context the PM is taken from?

A whole world that is invisible to us takes place under the surface of the water. With specific instruments and a huge amount of patience scientist try to reveal that world.
