Description
Information
From The Land Of The Amazons To The Indigo Isles - an alphabetical voyage of discovery.

A breathtaking feat of imagination - never will the letters of the alphabet be seen in the same light again - this treasury of fabulous tales of curiosity and wonder will appeal to all ages.

Orbae, an island of myth and fable, now lost for ever. Lost, that is, except for the exquisitely detailed work of its cartographers, whose surviving atlas charts and records in exquisite detail the 26 lands that were Orbae's world, among them the fabulous land of Bailabaikal, with its twin lakes and laughing toads; the exotic spice-trading city of Candaa curving round its great bay; and the elusive paradise of the two Indigo Isles. Strange customs, enthralling travellers' tales and bewitching landscapes conjure up the sort of fantasy that one hopes, somewhere, some time, might exist . . .

In the tradition of Swift's Lilliput and Tolkien's Middle Earth, Francois Place's lyrical prose and remarkable illustrations create an entire world for us to discover and marvel at.
