Un-Discovered Islands Summary


Un-Discovered Islands: An Archipelago of Myths and Mysteries, Phantoms and Fates by Malachy Tallack

'The oceans of the world are filled with places seen once and then never again; places born in myth and in mystery. They have existed in every part of the world, and some have appeared on maps for many centuries before finally being erased ...These islands are human in origin, the products of imagination and error. They are phantoms, fakes and legends: an archipelago of ex-isles and forgotten lands.' Un-Discovered Islands marks an exciting new excursion into the beautiful, mysterious and mythical by the critically acclaimed author of travel writing memoir, Sixty Degrees North.

Un-Discovered Islands Reviews


'intrepid intellectual fun, and Katie Scott's bold illustrations give an exotic colour to the pages' - Sunday Herald; 'It's a joy to island-hop through the book. After wowing the world with Sixty Degrees North last year, Tallack's second book is shaped by the same, clear, sharp prose and keen curiosity. Packed full of intelligent musings on everything from religion to astronomy, alchemy to the occult' - National Geographic Traveller; 'This has been a vintage year for books about cartography: Malachy Tallack gave us The Un-Discovered Islands - a swashbuckling romp through 20 islands of the imagination, some of which featured on sea charts for centuries before being proven not to exist' - Scotland on Sunday
