Corriere della Sera – La Lettura
Map of Remote and Literary Islands
Artwork for Visual Data, the column on "La Lettura", the cultural supplement of "Corriere Della Sera".
The visualization shows a collection of 60 islands, 30 remote islands and 30 literary islands. The first category includes the locations mentioned in the volume Atlas of Remote Islands: Fifty Islands I Have Never Set Foot On and Never Will, written by Judith Schalansky. For the category of literary islands the first 30 books (and the relative islands in which they are set) have been selected in the ranking "Books Set on the Islands", published on goodreads.com.
