Atlas of Vanishing Places awarded the Stanfords DK Eyewitness Travel Guides Illustrated Travel Book of the Year

DKIllustratedAward

‘Beautifully written, inspiring photography, sleek design and exquisite maps depicting ancient and forgotten lands in all their former glory… But this book is so much more than a call to travel to the far-flung corners of the globe…it is a welcome and timely reminder of the beauty and fragility of the world in which we live, and the importance of safeguarding it for future generations.  A joy to read, and a hands down winner for me.’ 
— Danielle Watt, Judge, DK Eyewitness Illustrated Travel Book of the Year, Edward Stanford Travel Writing Awards 2020
