Scottish author and new voice Malachy Tallack takes us on an adventure into the beautiful, mysterious, and mythical landscapes of the world with Un-Discovered Islands.

Explored in this book are over twenty islands that have decidedly human origins, whether they are the products of imagination, deception, or simply human error. They are phantoms, fakes, and legends: an archipelago of ex-islands and forgotten lands. From the well-known myths of Atlantis to the more obscure legends of Thule and Antilla, from the islands of pure fiction to others whose existence is still in question, Malachy has created an atlas of fairytale and wonder.

In the book, he tells the stories and myths of islands we have known, while also excavating the truth and the fact about the history and reality of these sometimes phantom lands.

Of broad appeal to both history, arm chair travel, and geography readers alike, the book has the added bonus of beautiful, fantastical illustrations created by award-winning artist Katie Scott.
