Atlas Obscura Points To The World's Oddities
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.
