An innovative mix of travelogue and armchair travel, this book is presented as an ideal photo album of a trip to India – the kind of album that everyone wishes they had the time or skill to put together, without the hassle of sifting through crumpled leaflets or fuzzy photos of monuments hidden behind the heads of strangers. Organized thematically rather than geographically, each chapter reflects one of the traveller's abiding impressions: India's vibrant colours; the hubbub of its city streets; the country's natural phenomena; and more. The 'album' is also peppered throughout with reproductions of such mementos as posters, labels and old photographs.
Packed with evocative images and texts that capture the distinctive atmosphere of the vast land of India, this highly visual volume will be lapped up by anyone with a love of travel and photography.
