A gorgeous book with glossy pictures that takes you on a journey through the world's most spectacular places, both real and mythical. It was given to me as a present in 7th grade and I still reread it as a great source of writing inspiration.

The Atlas of Legendary Places consists of a series of short articles, each presenting an overview of a particular place (some of which are more "legendary" than others). Most articles are either four or six pages in length, with at least half that space devoted to photos and other illustrations. While some of the photos are breathtaking, others are uninspiring, and some are even a bit blurry (such as the largest photo of Stonehenge, which apparently was chosen more for the large rainbow arching over the structure than for its photographic quality). Only half the pages are printed in color; the rest are black-and-white, some with splashes of sepia-tone spot color.

The articles are interesting enough, and there is a good variety of places, ranging from mythical to historical, natural to architectural, and famous to obscure. An enjoyable book, considered for what it's meant to be -- i.e., the sort of book you pick up and browse through, reading for a few minutes at a time rather than cover-to-cover.

Eternal Realms: The Garden of Eden, Atlantis, Camelot, Avalon;
Timeless Landscapes: Mount Ararat, The Nile, Ayers Rock (Uluru), Mount Fuji, Cappadocia, The Ganges, Haleakala Crater, Shenandoah Valley, The Himalayas;

Along with its companion volume, The Atlas of Mysterious Places, this is a beautiful coffee table-format book about the world's most magical places (some of them mythical, most of them real). The photographs and illustrations are the real attraction here, but the text is informative too.
