Atlas of Vanishing Places The lost worlds by Travis Elborough

I have reviewed two other ‘Atlas’ on this blog:

This particular book was different from the previous two Atlas’ that I read. This is more of a paced history/geography lesson. It goes in order, introducing us to a place- both as it stands(or doesn’t) now and how it used to be. There are pieces of information about the socio-economic conditions when it was a thriving location, the amount of information varies from place to place. It factors in the amount of upheaval that the place saw before ‘Vanishing’ from our current maps.

I am not sure if I will be purchasing this as well since I bought the last two and I am yet to re-read them. This is a beautiful series though and serves as a good coffee table edition, and can spark new life into flagging conversation at parties.

I received an ARC thanks to NetGalley and the publishers but the review is completely based on my own reading experience.
