Sad Topographies is an illustrated guide for the melancholic among us.
Dispirited travellers rejoice as Damien Rudd journeys across continents in search of the world’s most joyless place names and their fascinating etymologies.
Behind each lugubrious place name exists a story, a richly interwoven narrative of mythology, history, landscape, misadventure and tragedy. From Disappointment Island in the Southern Ocean to Misery in Germany, across to Lonely Island in Russia, or, if you’re feeling more intrepid, pay a visit to Mount Hopeless in Australia – all from the comfort of your armchair.
With hand drawn maps by illustrator Kateryna Didyk, Sad Topographies will steer you along paths that lead to strange and obscure places, navigating the terrains of historical fact and imaginative fiction. At turns poetic and dark-humoured, this is a travel guide quite like no other.

Pauline Frommer’s highly-personal guide to her own home city has, in previous editions, twice been named “Best Guidebook of the Year” by the North American Travel Journalists Association. It has been the best-selling guide to the city for the last four years.
Though she deals with luxury choices as well as bargains, she makes a special effort to overcome New York’s reputation for stratospheric prices, ferreting out scores of moderately-priced options in lodgings, meals, attractions, entertainment and more.
Like all Easy Guides, this annually-researched and popular best-seller is “Quick to Read, Light to Carry”—and colorfully written.
Fully updated yearly, and printed in large, easy-to-read type, the book contains:
• Handy pull-out map and bulleted maps throughout
• Self-guided walking tours
• Exact prices and subway directions for every listing in the book
• Opinionated advice on what to see and what to skip
• Insightful discussions of New York’s history and culture
• 16-page photo guide with vibrant photographs
