Inspiring travelers to become explorers by wandering off the beaten path through their online guidebook since 2009, Atlas Obscura takes us I.R.L. with this hardcover volume celebrating over 700 of the strangest and most curious places in the world! There are natural wonders - the dazzling glowworm caves in New Zealand or a baobob tree in South Africa that's so large it has a pub inside. There are architectural marvels, like the real-life M.C. Escher stepwells in India. Then there are mind-boggling events, like the Baby Jumping Festival in Spain and a weather-forecasting invention powered by leeches in Devon, England. Created by Joshua Foer, Dylan Thuras + Ella Morton, Atlas Obscura revels in the weird, the unexpected, the overlooked, the hidden + the mysterious. Every page expands our sense of how strange and marvelous the world really is. With its compelling descriptions, hundreds of photographs + surprising charts and maps for every region of the world, it is a book that you can read front to back but can also be entered from anywhere, and will be as appealing to the armchair traveler as the die-hard adventurer. Hardcover. 2016, Workman Publishing Company.
