Pick up an old stamp album and flick through it. You’ll find a host of exotic and unfamiliar names: Cyrenaica, Fernando Poo, Fiume, North Ingria, Obock, Priamur, Stellaland, Tuva, Wenden – distant lands, vanished territories, lost countries. Do they still exist? If not, where were they? What happened to them?
Lost Countries invites you to enjoy them all, in a collection of historical narratives as broad and enticing as an old stamp album that you’ve just discovered in the attic.
