If you love the movie and you haven't read the book, buy it. If you haven't seen the movie, buy the book, read it and then see the movie. If you have read the book and love the movie, then buy it and give it to someone else who has not yet been initiated. If you've never heard of The Princess Bride . . . well, that's just inconceivable.

An Atlas of Countries that Don't Exist

When I first heard about this book, I assumed these were made up places. They aren't. This atlas is full of real states with complex histories that have disqualified them from being official countries. Some are contemporary, some historical, while others have seen their recognition reneged in recent decades. You'll find everywhere from Lakotah (80,000 mi² within the United States), to Taiwan or Catalonia, to a concrete platform off the coast of England, and many more.

Published: Penguin Books - October 10th, 2017

If you buy the Penguin classics in hardcover just for the pretty covers then you'll like this: It's the same illustrator/designer! Coralie Bickford-Smith's new book is wonderfully illustrated and I think both adults and children will enjoy. It's darkly humorous, but also thoughtful and insightful.
