Praise

“(a) cartographical gem” –The Wall Street Journal – Great New (Armchair) Travel Reads

“This beautifully illustrated atlas reveals that cartography and the creative imagination have always intersected, spurred on by human wanderlust.”-NPR’s 2010 Favorites pick

“…absolutely magical.” –Conde Nast Traveler- CNTraveler.com

“An utterly exquisite object: atlas as Wunderkammer and bestiary, bound in black cloth and sea-blue card…makes a magnificent case for the atlas to be recognised as literature, worthy of its original name – theatrum orbis terrarum, “the theatre of the world”. -Robert Macfarlane, The Guardian (UK)

“‘Paradise is an island. So is hell.’ Or so says Judith Schalansky in the introduction to her charming, spooky and splendid Atlas of Remote Islands.”-The New Yorker’s Book Bench

“The first five times (or so) that I paged through the Atlas of Remote Islands: Fifty Islands I Have Never Set Foot On and Never Will, I fell deeply in love with the book… Each of author and artist Judith Schalansky’s maps–hand-drawn in shades of gray, black, white, and brilliant orange on cadet blue paper–transported me to a, usually, remote island…” –NationalGeographic.com

“Last night I devoured the most beautiful book… It’s wonderful: it’s like Borges’ eccentric encyclopedias. It is, in a word, great.”-Caustic Cover Critic blog
