Waterstones Says

The first edition of Foer’s delightful volume enchanted and illuminated millions, revealing hitherto neglected places, activities and events for inquisitive travellers to seek out. This updated version adds even more tantalising destinations as well as a fold out ‘road trip’ map with more colourful suggestions for places to visit. Quirky and unique, Atlas Obscura will open your eyes to diversity and difference of the world.

Atlas Obscura is a phenomenon of travel books. It rocketed to the top of bestseller lists and has over 626,000 copies in print since its publication in late 2016. Now the best gets better and the weirdest gets weirder with this completely revised and updated second edition that includes 120 new entries that offer readers even more of the most unusual, curious, bizarre, and mysterious places on earth.

In addition, the second edition includes a full-colour gatefold Atlas Obscura road trip map, with a dream itinerary. Created by the founders of AtlasObscura.com, the vibrant travel community that's grown substantially since the original edition, Atlas Obscura expands the reader's sense of what's possible.

Oversized, beautifully packaged, compellingly written, scrupulously researched, and filled with photographs, illustrations, maps, charts, and more, it is the book that inspires equal parts wonder and wanderlust. It informs us on every page of something we never knew - and paints a rich panorama of what a marvellously strange world we live in. For the travel lover and curious reader, it's a gift book that's literally impossible to put down.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The Second Edition of Atlas Obscura is a hefty book but one that the world traveler in your life will love. There are hidden gems with over 100 more places added from the original. Travel through Budapest, Moscow, Tokyo, and more with the turn of the page and showcase all the curiosities this world holds." - The Daily Beast

"Beholding hundreds of off-the-beaten-path gems, this book is a treasure chest of wanderlust where readers are transported to places they're certain to have never encountered." - Marie Claire

"The second edition of "Atlas Obscura" is a gift so enthralling that it may draw the recipient into a kind of extended trance. Crammed fore-to-aft with "the world's hidden wonders," this collaboration by Joshua Foer, Dylan Thuras and Ella Morton features mesmerizing photos, maps, drawings, info and addresses. On one page there's a Thai monk standing in saffron serenity in a village temple built of brown and green beer bottles; on another a bust of Vladimir Lenin, erected in 1958 by Soviet scientists who made it to Antarctica's "Southern Pole of Inaccessibility." If you can get there (the authors have advice about that), you may find, depending on the weather, only the top of the tyrant's head poking from the snow." - Wall Street Journal

"Satisfy your wanderlust and plan your next travel adventure with the help of this brilliantly illustrated guide." -Car and Driver Magazine
