Read: Atlas of the Unexpected in New Statesman’s Books of the Year 2018

NEW-STATESMAN_16112018

David Kynaston

‘Travis Elborough writes about a wide range of subjects with originality, learning and charm. Atlas of the Unexpected (White Lion), one of his several books this year, is also seductively beautiful: an inspiring, dream-inducing guide to almost four dozen “haphazard discoveries, chance places and unimaginable destinations”, few of which are in Britain. ‘

Out Now: Atlas of the Unexpected

Unknown

‘Unexpected, haphazard, unimaginable – but ultimately accessible experiences for intrepid humans today – Atlas of the Unexpected is a voyage to places both infamous and unknown; a compendium of places odd and enchanting, ancient and modern, touched by the certainty of chance and the oft-haphazard nature of what passed for discovery in the golden age of exploration.

Whether it’s the savvy invention of Vaseline at an American oil rig, or the serendipitous journey of a stray goat that led to the fortuitous discovery of the Dead Sea scrolls, Atlas of the Unexpected travels to the world’s most astounding and bizarre discoveries unearthed on our planet.’

Atlas of the Unexpected by Travis Elborough with maps by Martin Brown (White Lion Publishing 2018)
