Books about things hidden in plain sight

I recently reread René Daumal's Mount Analogue
and am looking for other books about things - buildings, people, phenomena, organizations, parts of the natural world - that are hidden in plain sight.

I'm mainly interested in literary fiction and non-fiction focusing on an aspect of the world that is right in front of us - or just out of sight - but that requires specialized knowledge, persistence, or just dumb luck to discover. Recommendations for high-quality fantasy and science-fiction (e.g. Ben Aaronovich's "Rivers of London" series) on this theme are also appreciated.
