The Un-Discovered Islands: An Archipelago of Myths and Mysteries, Phantoms and Fakes

by Malachy Tallack, illustrated by Katie Scott
£14.99   hardback  Birlinn General (2016)

The Un-Discovered Islands: An Archipelago of Myths and Mysteries, Phantoms and Fakes by Malachy Tallack, illustrated by Katie Scott Critically acclaimed author Malachy Tallack returns with The Un-Discovered Islands, an exploration of some of the world’s strangest places.
 
Gathered in the book are two dozen islands once believed to be real but no longer on the map. These are the products of imagination, deception and simple human error. They are phantoms and fakes: an archipelago of ex-isles and forgotten lands.
 
From the well-known story of Atlantis to more obscure tales from around the globe; from ancient history right up to the present day. This is an atlas of legend and wonder, of places discovered and then un-discovered.
 
Malachy's words are accompanied in the book by glorious full-colour illustrations by Katie Scott, who has previously worked with the New York Times, Kew Gardens and the BBC. She is the illustrator of the beautiful Animalium and Botanicum.
