It's time to get off the beaten path. Inspiring equal parts wonder and wanderlust, Atlas Obscura celebrates over 700 of the strangest and most curious places in the world. Talk about a bucket list: here are natural wonders—the dazzling glowworm caves in New Zealand, or a baobob tree in South Africa that's so large it has a pub inside where 15 people can drink comfortably. Architectural marvels, including the M.C. Escher-like stepwells in India. Mind-boggling events, like the Baby Jumping Festival in Spain, where men dressed as devils literally vault over rows of squirming infants. Not to mention the Great Stalacpipe Organ in Virginia, Turkmenistan's 40-year hole of fire called the Gates of Hell, a graveyard for decommissioned ships on the coast of Bangladesh, eccentric bone museums in Italy, or a weather-forecasting invention that was powered by leeches, still on display in Devon, England. Created by Joshua Foer, Dylan Thuras and Ella Morton, ATLAS OBSCURA revels in the weird, the unexpected, the overlooked, the hidden and the mysterious. Every page expands our sense of how strange and marvelous the world really is. And with its compelling descriptions, hundreds of photographs, surprising charts, maps for every region of the world, it is a book to enter anywhere, and will be as appealing to the armchair traveler as the die-hard adventurer. Anyone can be a tourist. ATLAS OBSCURA is for the explorer.

Nato da un popolarissimo sito web, Atlas Obscura raccoglie oltre 600 luoghi tra i più bizzarri e misteriosi al mondo. Un compendio di prodigi naturali e architettonici in grado di ispirare al tempo stesso meraviglia e il desiderio irrefrenabile di viaggiare. Dal pozzo a gradini in India che ricorda un'opera di Escher alle grotte delle lucciole in Nuova Zelanda, dal gigantesco baobab in Sudafrica che ospita al suo interno un bar alla "festa del salto del neonato" in Spagna, Atlas Obscura ci delizia mostrandoci tutto quanto, al mondo, è inaspettato, misterioso, nascosto. E ancora, il grande organo a stalattiti in Virginia, il cratere in Turkmenistan - detto la "Porta dell'inferno" - che brucia da oltre 45 anni, le bare appese alle pareti rocciose di un promontorio nelle Filippine, o il "pronosticatore di tempeste" azionato da sanguisughe conservato nel Devon, in Inghilterra... Più Wunderkammer che guida tradizionale, Atlas Obscura è dedicato al viaggiatore da poltrona come all'amante delle avventure più estreme. Con descrizioni accurate e avvincenti, centinaia di fotografie, grafici e mappe di ogni regione del mondo, è un libro da aprire dove capita e leggere. Con un'unica avvertenza: una volta cominciato è impossibile smettere.

On average, people squander forty days annually trying to remember things they've forgotten. Joshua Foer used to be one of those people. But after a year of training, he found himself in the finals of the U.S. Memory Championship. He also discovered a truth we too often forget: In every way, we are the sum of our memories. In Moonwalking with Einstein Foer draws on cutting-edge research, the cultural history of memory and the techniques of 'mental atheletes' to transform our understanding of human remembering. He learns the ancient methods used by Cicero and Medieval scholars. He meets amnesiacs, neuroscientists and savants - including a man who claims to have memorized more than nine thousand books. In doing so, he reveals the hidden impact of memory on our lives, and shows how we can all dramatically improve our memories. At a time when electronic devices have all but rendered our individual memories obsolete, Foer's book is a quest to resurrect the gift we all possess, but that too often slips our minds.

Named a 2003 Book of the Year by The Guardian [London], winner of the 2004 Kraszna-Krausz Moving Image Book Award in Culture and History (honoring "the world's best book on the moving images") and honored as an "Outstanding Academic Title" in Choice, the publication of the American Library Association. With forays into the fields of geography, art, architecture, design, cartography, and film, Giuliana Bruno's Atlas of Emotion is a highly original endeavour to map a cultural history of the visual arts. She insists throughout on the inseparability of seeing and travelling. In so doing, she touches on the art of Gerhard Richter and Annette Messager; the filmmaking of Peter Greenaway and Michelangelo Antonioni; the architecture of cinema and its precursors. Visually luscious and daring in conception, the voyage opens new vistas and understandings at every turn.

Take an eclectic journey across Canada to seek out our world-renowned natural and historic landmarks. With its immense size, its range of landscapes, and its diverse cultures, Canada has a wealth of natural and historic sites recognized by institutions, such as UNESCO, the National Geographic Society, and Atlas Obscura, among others. In 1885, the formation of Banff National Park touched off the creation of a vast network of natural parks and heritage sites that has grown to include Old Quebec, the Rideau Canal, and the Fortress of Louisbourg. Aboriginal UNESCO World Heritage Sites, such as Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump in Alberta and the Gwaii Haanas totems in British Columbia, as well as such indigenous cultural sites as ancient Inukshuks and Ontario’s “Stonehenge”-like boulder configurations, are among the ancient and iconic wonders of this land. In a coast-to-coast survey of Canada’s natural and historical marvels, this book also highlights Canada’s engineering wonders, including the world’s longest and deepest railway tunnel and the Trans-Canada Highway, the world’s longest named highway.

In this bucket list of travel musts, author Loren Rhoads, who hosts the popular Cemetery Travel blog, details the history and features that make each destination unique.

From Chicago historian Adam Selzer, expert on all of the Windy City’s quirks and oddities, comes a compelling heavily researched anthology of the stories behind its most fascinating unsolved mysteries. To create this unique volume, Selzer has collected forty unsolved mysteries from the 1800s to modern day. He has poured through all newspaper, magazine, and book references to them, and consulted expert historians. Topics covered include who really started the great Chicago fire, who was the first "automobile murderer,” and even if there was actually a vampire slaying at Rose Hill cemetery. The result is both a colorful read to get lost in, a window to a world of curiosity and wonder, as well as a volume that separates fact from fiction--true crime from urban legend. Complementing the gripping stories Selzer presents are original images of the crime and its suspects as developed by its original investigators. Readers will marvel at how each character and crime were presented, and happily journey with Selzer as he presents all facts and theories presented at the time of the "crime” and uses modern hindsight to assemble the pieces.

What happens when someone who doesn't speak English attempts to write a Portuguese-English phrasebook? THIS is what happens. "Nobody can add to the absurdity of this book, nobody can imitate it successfully, nobody can hope to produce its fellow; it is perfect." - Mark Twain "[T]he second chapter is titled 'Familiar Phrases, ' and features sentences intended to help the weary Portuguese traveler in everyday conversation. These phrases include classics like 'He has spit in my coat'; 'take that boy and whip him to much'; and the oft-used 'these apricots and these peaches make me and to come water in mouth.' - Tucker Leighty-Phillips, Atlas Obscura "[T]he book migrated to literary circles in London, where it became the Victorian equivalent of a viral video. Friends passed it to friends who giggled over - even then - unintentionally sexual phrases such as, 'He do the devil at four.' - Mike Drucker, Splitsider "Is there anything in conventional English which could equal the vividness of 'to craunch a marmoset'?" - Stephen Pile
