Pocket Atlas of Remote Islands : Fifty Islands I Have Not Visited and Never Will Paperback

4.5 out of 5 (1 rating)

Description

Born on the wrong side of the Berlin Wall, as a child Judith Schalansky could travel only through the pages of an atlas.

Now she has created her own, taking us across the oceans of the world to fifty remote islands.

Perfect maps jostle with cryptic tales from the islands, full of rare animals and lost explorers, marooned slaves and lonely scientists, mutinous sailors and forgotten castaways.

What a charming little book! Random fragments of history combined with maps and basic information of each island, a wonderful read! Fabulous layout and design, a beautiful, beautiful book.
