Luxury hardback atlas by a critically acclaimed new talent in travel writing
Winner of the Destinations Show Illustrated Travel Book of the Year 2016.

Critically acclaimed author Malachy Tallack returns in the autumn of 2016 with The Un-Discovered Islands, an exploration of some of the world's strangest places.

Gathered in the book are two dozen islands once believed to be real but no longer on the map. These are the products of imagination, deception and simple human error. They are phantoms and fakes: an archipelago of ex-isles and forgotten lands.From the well-known story of Atlantis to more obscure tales from around the globe; from ancient history right up to the present day. This is an atlas of legend and wonder, of places discovered and then un-discovered.

Malachy's words will be accompanied in the book by glorious full-colour illustrations by Katie Scott, who has previously worked with the New York Times, Kew Gardens and the BBC. She is the illustrator of the beautiful Animalium and the forthcoming Botanicum.
