Judith Schalansky

Writer and graphic designer

Judith Schalansky studied Art History and Visual Design. She is a writer, graphic designer and also editor of the prestigious Matthes & Seitz natural history collection. Each of Schalansky's works takes us into a world of thought, memory and creation that delves into perennial aspects of the human condition. Her literary career includes unclassifiable works such as the novel The Giraffe's Neck (Bloomsbury, 2014) and the peculiar Atlas of Remote Islands. Fifty islands I've never been to and will never go to (Penguin Books, 2010), where he creates her own atlas of the loneliest places in the world, an international critical and public success that has been translated into twenty languages. Her latest book is An Inventory of Losses (Hachette Collections, 2020) where the author builds a museum for some things that have disappeared forever.
