Intrepid travellers from past and present air their views on the joys and horrors of travel. Their tiny figures dot the pages of this enchanting book, in which exquisitely witty images and apt quotations will inspire readers to write down their own thoughts. The words and pictures are taken from Laura Stoddart's 'Off the Beaten Track: A Traveller's Anthology'.
Laura Stoddart trained at the Royal College of Art and was the youngest artist ever to be commissioned to design the Christmas stamps for the Royal Mail. Since then her work has appeared in many magazines, on greetings cards and giftwrap, and on packaging for Crabtree & Eveyln and the New York label, Kate Spade.
