Throughout the ages, writers have created an astonishing diversity of imaginary places, worlds of enchantment, horror and delight. This monumental book unites them in a single volume and takes readers on a grand tour of more than 1,200 imaginary cities, islands, countries, and continents, all invented by storytellers from Homer’s day to our own. Written with wit and brilliance, this updated classic includes dozens of new entries and is a visual delight with more than 200 original illustrations and maps, and new illustrations by award-winning Canadian artist Ken Nutt.
