Atlas Al-Juzur Al-Naa'iyah (Atlas Der Abgelegenen Inseln/Atlas of Remote Islands)
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 useshistoric events and scientific reports as a springboard for each island, providing information on its distance from the mainland, whether it is inhabited, its features, and the stories that have shaped its lore. She has spent years creating this, her own imaginative atlas of the world's loneliest places. These islands are so difficult to reach that until the late 1990s more people had set foot on the moon than on Peter I Island in the Antarctic. With stunning full-colour maps and an air of mysterious adventure, Atlas al-Juzur al-Naa'iyah is perfect for the traveller or romantic in all of us.
