Most travel-focused books transport you to faraway lands with stunning photography and boots-on-the-ground anecdotes. This is not one of them. Armed with nothing more than research and drawing tools, Judith Schalansky takes you to some of the most isolated places on Earth in her Atlas of Remote Islands: Fifty Islands I Have Never Set Foot on and Never Will. Historic events, scientific reports, and local legends serve as the introductions for the islands, each one depicted with hand-drawn maps that recall a more romantic, adventurous age of travel.
