Publisher Comments:

Around the World in 500 Festivals is a rare book that will fascinate and inspire. A large-format, beautifully illustrated coffee-table volume, it is a photographic exploration of the richness and variety of the world’s most colourful, moving, joyful, and spectacular celebrations. Thousands of festivals, great and small, take place around the world every year.

 

The book contains:

• A unique selection of 500 unmissable festivals around the world

• More than 200 full-colour photographs that capture the spirit and immediacy

of the events

• Special features in the form of extended photographic essays

• Original research and stunning photography by an internationally recognized

writer-photographer

 

Around the World in 500 Festivals takes this approach to a different level. It will help

people who want to plan their trip to coincide with a festival. It will also enthrall and inform

armchair travelers everywhere. Elegantly designed and lavishly produced, it is exceptional

value for money and makes a perfect gift for travellers and readers of all ages,

backgrounds, and cultures.
