From the founders of Atlas Obscura.com, the online destination for wonder and curiosity with over 3.2 million active monthly users comes a book like no other, featuring over 600 lushly illustrated entries on wondrous, curious, eccentric and bizarre locales: from the bone museums of Italy to the self-mummified monks of Japan to the Gates of Hell, a 328-foot-wide-hole in the middle of the Turkmenistan desert that has been on fire for 40 years. 

Engagingly written, scrupulously researched, beautifully designed and endlessly fascinating, Atlas Obscura is the pinnacle of armchair travel.
