EDWARD STANFORD ILLUSTRATED TRAVEL BOOK OF THE YEAR 2017

Critically-acclaimed author Malachy Tallack returns with a brand new excursion into the beautiful, mysterious and mythical landscapes of the world with The Un-Discovered Islands.

Gathered in this book are over twenty islands that have decidedly human origins, whether they are the products of imagination, deception or simply human error. They are phantoms, fakes and legends: an archipelago of ex-isles and forgotten lands. From the well-known myths of Atlantis to the more obscure legends of Thule and Antilla, from the islands of pure fiction to others whose existence are still in question, Malachy has created an atlas of fairytale and wonder.

This time Malachy’s prose will be accompanied by glorious full colour illustrations from Katie Scott. She has worked with The New York Times,
Converse, Urban Outfitters and the BBC. She is the illustrator of the beautiful Animalium.
