Finding oneself

Now that everyone has a global atlas in their pocket, we’re looking further and further afield to find ways of exploring places that might not otherwise be easily found, either in real life or in the imagination. A selection of recent books: Atlas of Lost Cities; Atlas of Cursed Places; The Phantom Atlas; An Atlas of Countries That Don’t Exist; Vargic’s Miscellany of Curious Maps; Atlas of Improbable Places; the Atlas Obscura; the wonderful Pocket Atlas of Remote Islands and the old but still great From Here to There: A Curious Collection from the Hand Drawn Map Association.
