About this item

New islands are under construction or emerging because of climate change. Eccentric enclaves and fantastic utopian experiments are multiplying. Once-secret fantasy gardens are cracking open their doors to outsiders. Our world is becoming stranger by the day - and Alastair Bonnett observes and captures every fascinating change. In Beyond the Map, Bonnett presents stories of the world's most extraordinary spaces - many unmarked on any official map - all of which challenge our assumptions about what we know - or think we know - about our world. As cultural, religious and political boundaries ebb and flow with each passing day, traditional maps unravel and fragment. With the same adventurous spirit he effused in the acclaimed Unruly Places, Bonnett takes us to thirty-nine incredible spots around the globe to explore these changing boundaries and stimulate our geographical imagination.
