Volume 1 (2012-2013)
The Appendix sprang from a simple idea: a lot of what makes the past fascinating, human, and relevant ends up on history’s cutting room floor.

Our “Off the Map” issue explores a geography of absence and hidden traces.

There can be no sense of history without a sense of movement.
