Editorial Reviews

Review

"Features well-known lost cities like Pompeii and Angkor, but also explores lesser-known, but similarly majestic places.... Each destination is accompanied by an account of its history and mythology, and a beautifully detailed illustration by Karin Doering-Froger."―Atlas Obscura

"For history buffs, mystery fanatics, and travel junkies alike, The Atlas of Lost Cities is a highly entertaining read filled with stories of the world's forgotten destinations."―GoNomad

"[A] eulogy for ancient and modern cities that fell to crises both man-made and natural. The illustrations depict the cities before their nadir-somewhere between thriving and decimation."―Citylab.com

About the Author

Aude de Tocqueville, a cultural heritage and history buff, has written numerous works on Paris and French history. Her book History of Adultery won the Grand Prix des Lectrices by Elle.
