Atlas der abgelegenen Inseln Fünfzig Inseln auf denen ich nie war und niemals sein werde

M the mainland whether its inhabited its features and the stories that have shaped its lore With full color maps and an air of mysterious adventure Atlas of Remote Island is perfect for the traveler or romantic in all of u Written designed and even typeset by the author this is an exuisite little book to read In terms of content I think it is compelling in a car crash kind of way disturbing and at times horrific but difficult to turn away from Some of the stories I was familiar with and I ve even visited one of these fifty remote islands but overall I agree with the author who says in her introduction what I found on my journey were not models of romantic alternative ways of living but islands one might wish had remained undiscovered unsettlingly barren places whose riches lay in the multitude of terrible events that had befallen them Like any other atlas the islands are grouped into regions in this case

    I would give this book 10 stars if I could I wish it was twice as long It has a beautiful introduction full of thoughts on travel and what it is that draws people to remote places The majority of the book is two page segments where the island's map is on one side and the other has basic information on it when it was discovered how many peop

    Physically this is a very lovely book In concept it is surely a contender for the ultimate expression of armchair journalism on Earth The proportions and weight of this book makes it deeply satisfying to hold I love the very feel of the paper; the minimal palette of colour; the frustratingly unspecified fonts used to set the texts In relief each island is positioned on a background of water cool pale greyish blue; annotated wit

    Fifty remote islands The author didn't see them I will probably never visit them Every island has a story beautiful like a fairy tale and a beautiful map This is a very good way to get through the winter
