Publisher Comments:

Featuring images and icons of foreign travel, this hip gift line will inspire both intrepid wanderers and armchair travelers to record and share tales of wanderlust adventure, and discovery. Who doesn't want to travel? This visually adventurous book celebrates the funny, mundane, and unexpectedly beautiful aspects of traveling the world with a sense of discovery and wonder. Troy Litten's eye-opening photography focuses on the too-often-overlooked moments between destinations. Here are Japanese transit lockers decorated with cherry blossoms, exuberant London postcard racks, hand-painted Indian signs, and mannequin faces in Istanbul. Exquisitely designed and packed with photographs and travel ephemera from around the world, Wanderlust mirrors a globe-hopping trip full of visual and sensual delight, for both the armchair and insatiable world travelers we all long to be.

Review:

"In this vibrant array of photos, photographer and graphic designer Litten cleverly depicts the most commonplace experiences of traveling: stumbling into a dark hotel room bathroom at night, gazing out a window on a high-speed train, trying to catch a few z's on an uncomfortable airport bench. Readers would be hard-pressed to nail any of the book's copious images down to a specific locale. Instead, the photographs emphasize travel's universal nature, portraying such ordinary sights as racks of postcards, cups of coffee, weathermen pointing to maps dotted with clouds and sunshine, itty-bitty airplane meals served on white trays with tiny packets of salt and pepper and plastic cups of orange juice. Litten elevates his subject through his amusing juxtapositions and his keen eye for colorful layouts — and the book's small size suggests that he doesn't expect readers to take it too seriously. Nonetheless, he may have created one of the most realistic accounts of the beauty, adventure, frustration, boredom and wonder of travel." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

A wordless evocation of place, "Wanderlust" captures the funny, mundane, and unexpectedly beautiful aspects of traveling the world with a sense of discovery and wonder. Litten's photographs — over 400 of them — celebrate the too-often-overlooked moments between destinations that are every bit a part of the pleasure of travel. Here are Japanese transit lockers decorated with cherry blossoms, exuberant London postcard racks, hand-painted Indian signs, Bangkok night market displays, cheap hotel decor in Buenos Aires, feather duster salesmen in Rio, and mannequin faces in Istanbul. As exquisitely designed as Litten's successful "Wanderlust" Gift line, this visually adventurous book delivers a globe-hopping trip full of sensual delights for both armchair and insatiable world travelers.

Synopsis:

Celebrating travel as a state of mind, this richly visual little book - packed with photographs and travel ephemera from around the world - taps into the wanderlust in us all.
