Atlas of Forgotten Places

Journey to Abandoned Destinations from Around the Globe
Travis Elborough

Description

From eerie ghost towns to epic undersea monuments, you will be captivated by this curious atlas of strange and surreal abandoned sites across the world. Abandoned places are mysterious, strange, striking, neglected, hazardous and off-limits. Each sleeping monument offers a snapshot that transports you back in time, invites you to peer into hidden histories, unearth glamorous pasts and reveal dark truths.

Featuring over 40 sites, from a disused New York subway station to a train cemetery in Bolivia, from a crumbling fourth-century castle to a derelict industrial monolith, from a vacant five-star hotel to a Soviet ghost town in the Arctic Circle, these locations are a stark reminder of what was, and the accounts in this investigative book help to bring their stories back to life, telling us what happened, when and why, and to whom.

Original maps and stunning colour photography accompany Travis Elborough's moving historic and geographic accounts of each site.
