The Travel Book
A Journey Through Every Country in the World.
In the media
'A journey through every country in the world' is the theme of this epic coffee table book and, indeed, it is. Get your red pen and Post-it notes prepared to spend hours flipping through photos and facts about every single country and region on the globe, from Barundi to Saint Lucia. It’s light-hearted and gorgeous, showing off the best of every nation. If you don’t salivate over this enormous wishlist, you might not have wanderlust after all.'
From the San Francisco Chronicle:
'It's Lonely Planet's ambitious, alphabetized tribute to more than 200 countries and their customs. A whopping 448 pages, this coffee table book provides two pages of info (and images) per country - regardless of size - and showcases destinations that don't always receive their fair share of ink and airtime. The succinct travel tips and smatterings of trivia allow the reader to quickly get the gist of a country.'
'This weighty tome provides photographic and textual coverage of every nation and commonwealth on the planet, from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe. Each destination is covered in a colorful two-page spread featuring photos, both small and very large, which capture glimpses of local terrain and cityscapes, but which more keenly focus on indigenous people, flora and fauna, and cultural customs. The accompanying text efficiently whets the appetite of the prospective world traveler with once-over-lightly discussion of peak travel periods and things to do, incisive tidbits about the character of the country, an instructive phrase or two in the native language, and a small map delineating key areas and urban centers... Perhaps no less astonishing is the book's price tag, since this kind of pictorially opulent coffee-table item often costs twice as much.'

Love this book.
- a small map
- a few photos
- a short introduction to the country
- best time to visit
- top things to see
- top things to do
- getting under the skin (my favourite section as it suggests a novel, music, a film and food/drink to try)
- in a word (contains a phrase in the local language. Many of the phrases are fun or interesting rather than useful)
- trademarks (a list of things the country is known for)
- a random fact
This is a gorgeous and inspiring coffee-table book (although you may want to get the legs of your coffee table reinforced to deal with the weight of this tome!). Obviously this is not the sort of practical travel guide you would buy to plan a trip. It is a beautiful book with stunning photography that will inspire you to travel.
One thing to note, check the book dimensions - it's massive!
