Out Now: Atlas of the Unexpected


‘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.’
