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)
