    Atlas of Cursed Places: A Travel Guide to Dangerous and Frightful Destinations af Olivier Le Carrer (Oct326)
    Oct326: Non c'è sovrapposizione tra i luoghi trattati in questi due libri, ma c'è tra i concetti: l'insieme dei "luoghi maledetti" e quello delle "isole remote" hanno certamente intersezione non vuota. Ecco perché chi è interessato ad uno può esserlo anche all'altro. Schalansky li tratta con stile sobrio, Le Carrer con ironia e leggerezza, ed entrambi li presentano con una grafica curata e di ottima qualità.… (mere)

    Hippolyte's Island: An Illustrated Novel af Barbara Hodgson (Nickelini)
    Nickelini: One is straight fiction, the other is mostly factual, but there is a certain air and tone about them in common, and they are likely to appeal to the same reader.

    De usynlige byer af Italo Calvino (CGlanovsky)
    CGlanovsky: Little vignettes about places. Calvino's are more fanciful and there's a twist, while Schalansky's are little anecdotes based on actual bizarre and out-of-the-way places.

A selection of essays, some perhaps apocryphal, about a selection of islands that are rarely discussed or even included on maps. Needless to say this is right up my alley and I thoroughly enjoyed it. ( )

The font of the entire book was hard for me to read. It made the book different but not easy. Each island had a story. Some of them were more interesting than others. Some of them seemed like they started in the middle of the story and were hard to follow then abruptly ended. Some I wanted to hear more of but there was nothing more to read. ( )

Schalansky's elegant work is inspirational, although the encounters between man and island found upon its pages are often disturbing. ( )

This is such a bizarre premise for a book - and yet likely to appeal to anybody who has ever been an Atlas Adventurer - someone who explored the world and their imagination using only an atlas. Well, I did that as a kid and even now, so the idea of vicariously exploring these oscure places appealed to me a lot. Vicariously at two removes, since the author hasn't been to any of them, either. (I have met people who've been to two of the places in this book, though.)

The design of the book is amazing, compressing a remarkable amount of geographical and historical information into two pages for each island whilst retaining clarity and aesthetic appeal, as all atlases should. I suspect researching such obscure places was also a challenge even with access to the power of the internet.

Elegent, interesting and unique; a fabulous book. ( )

Crazy concept, but with concise yet in-depth info, it works. Also, a nice story with each island. Finished 25.05.2020 at the NR. ( )

Med sina poetiska, lätt absurda berättelser kan ”Atlas över avlägsna öar” föra tankarna till Italo Calvinos ”De osynliga städerna”, där Marco Polo berättar för Kublai Khan om alla städer han besökt under sina resor. Fast här handlar det alltså om fastlandets fotnoter. Calvino hade älskat den. Xavier de Maistre också.
Judith Schalansky has chosen to incubate the minds of people who map islands. Curled up behind their eyeballs, she has let herself be carried around the globe from Lonely island in the Arctic to Deception in the Antarctic. Although she travels like Jules Verne, she describes each lonely deceptive landfall like Jorge Luis Borges. . . The writing is mercurial and bewitching. Almost as good as a map.
In her foreword, Schalansky describes the act of finger-walking a map as an "erotic gesture". Cartophiles will know instantly what she means: not that there is a sexual frisson involved in map-reading, but that the distant longing for a landscape is usually far greater than the satisfaction gained by reaching it (eroticism's essence being anticipation rather than consummation). "There is no more poetic book than an atlas," Schalansky writes, and her book makes a magnificent case for the atlas to be recognised as literature, worthy of its original name – theatrum orbis terrarum, "the theatre of the world".
Readers expecting a feelgood gazetteer of romantic destinations will be brought up short by the subtitle to Judith Schalansky's extraordinary and excellent book: 'Fifty Islands I Have Not Visited and Never Will'. A recent bestseller in her native Germany (she designed and typeset it herself), Atlas of Remote Islands is a tribute to her early fascination with cartography and the geographical restrictions on travel that were in place in her youth in East Germany. In the preface she maps out her formative notions of impassability and wanderlust, remoteness and colonisation, and the result is a phantasmagoric mosaic of human frustration and brinkmanship from Pingelap to Pukapuka, and beyond.
