Atlas of Forgotten Places
Explore the places that time forgot. Mysterious, sleeping monuments around the world have been relegated to the margins of history, pushed off the map and out of sight. From ancient ruins and crumbling castles to more recent relics - an art deco New York subway station, a Soviet ghost town in the Arctic Circle, a flooded Thai mall teeming with aquatic life - Travis Elborough takes you on a journey into these strange, overlooked and disappearing worlds and immortalises their fates. Peer into hidden histories, unearth glamorous pasts and discover dark truths. Travis Elborough is an acclaimed author and social commentator. His books include A London Year, The Long-Player Goodbye, A Walk in the Park and Atlas of Vanishing Places, winner of Edward Stanford's Illustrated Book of the Year in 2020. He is a regular contributor to Radio 4 and the Guardian and has penned articles on all aspects of travel and culture for the Times, Sunday Times, New Statesman, BBC History Magzine and Kinfolk among others.
