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.
