Maybe we don't use them as much in the age of online maps, but atlases are handy books to have. 

They show you the world.  A different kind of atlas, Atlas Obscura, shows you the unique and unusual places and features of the world. 

Atlas Obscura is a collaborative online project, and it has just published a book version containing some of the highlights. 

From the upside-down house of Poland to the body of St. Francis Xavier in India, there's plenty to see in the book.  Co-authors Dylan Thuras and Ella Morton visit.
