Praise For…


'Beautifully written, inspiring photography, sleek design and exquisite maps depicting ancient and forgotten lands in all their former glory… But this book is so much more than a call to travel to the far-flung corners of the globe…it is a welcome and timely reminder of the beauty and fragility of the world in which we live, and the importance of safeguarding it for future generations.  A joy to read, and a hands down winner for me.' 
 
- Danielle Watt, Judge, DK Eyewitness Illustrated Travel Book of the Year, Edward Stanford Travel Writing Awards 2020-

'The temporal sweep of the book is immense... very nicely produced with alluring photographs and lovely colour maps... a great Christmas gift for budding explorer and armchair traveller alike.' 
- Hackney Citizen-

'The vanishing places featured in this atlas, from archaeological sites to encroached ecosystems, all compel... A reminder of earthly evanescence — and of the urgency to preserve what we can of what remains.'
