    Judith Schalansky’s self-initiated Atlas der abgelegenen Inseln was published to great acclaim by German publisher mareverlag in 2009. That same year, it was featured in the selection of The Most Beautiful German Books competition. In 2010, the book was picked up by Particular Books (an imprint of the Penguin Group) and gained a huge following the world over amongst map lovers, geography buffs and graphic designers alike.

    Schalansky designed the book herself using Alan Dague-Greene’s exquisite MVB Sirenne, whose origin in 18th-century copper-engraved map lettering makes it a very astute choice for such a project.
