About the Book

Atlas of Remote Islands

by Judith Schalansky

A rare and beautifully illustrated journey to fifty faraway worlds.

There are still places on earth that are unknown. Visually stunning and uniquely designed, this wondrous book captures fifty islands that are far away in every sense --- from the mainland, from people, from airports, and from holiday brochures. Author Judith Schalansky used historic events and scientific reports as a springboard for each island, providing information on its distance from the mainland, whether it’s inhabited, its features, and the stories that have shaped its lore. With stunning full-color maps and an air of mysterious adventure, ATLAS OF REMOTE ISLANDS is perfect for the traveler or romantic in all of us.
