“This is the comfort food of travel books. . . . This book will sweep you off your feet.”
—New York Times Book Review
“Gorgeous . . . breathtaking . . . spectacular.”
Patricia Schultz curates the world. When she published the original
1,000 Places to See Before You Die, she created not only a new kind of travel book but also a new way of thinking about our experiences and interests.
Now Schultz captivates our hearts in the same compelling way her original book spoke to our minds. Moving from eloquent word to breathtaking image, she takes us on a visual journey of the best the world has to offer, and as we turn the pages and pore over these images, we feel it all: joy, curiosity, awe, passion, nostalgia (if we’ve been there), inspiration (because we want to go), and a profound and transforming sense of how lucky we are to live in a world filled with such beauty and wonder—to see tributaries of mist curling over the Great Wall, elephants grazing on the floor of the Ngorongoro Crater, the sun setting on the wild coast of Donegal, masked whirling dancers at a festival in Bhutan.
The book itself is a thing of beauty, an oversize feast of more than 1,000 all-new photographs and 544 pages, every spread and page designed to showcase these mesmerizing photographs and hold just enough of Schultz’s lively text that we know why it is we’re looking at them. It is a perfect gift for every traveler, every fan of the original, every dreamer whose Instagram feed is filled with pictures of places near and far.
“This is the comfort food of travel books. . . . This book is meant to inspire wanderlust in anybody who needs an actual getaway. If you’re living in a bubble, this book will keep you there. If you’re not, this book will sweep you off your feet, gently.”
New York Times Book Review
“Ever swoon over a travel book before? Get ready to get giddy.
1,000 Places to See Before You Die—the world’s bestselling travel book of all time . . . by globetrotting journalist Patricia Schultz—has now been extravagantly reimagined in a dazzling new deluxe edition. And what a treasure pleasure it is. The hefty, luxuriously oversize, hardcover coffee-table
tour de force is visually riveting. More than 1,000 gorgeous color photographs are designed on 544 pages. Schultz’s engaging words weave together a tapestry of descriptions. . . . There are surprises galore, fresh finds, plenty of ‘aha’ discoveries. This book will be a popular holiday gift choice for both intrepid adventurers and armchair travelers—and nearly every vacationer in between.”
“The ultimate travel bucket list. . . a must have.”
“If you want to elicit oohs and aahs, get someone this book. . . . Stunning.”
The Daily Beast
“[This new deluxe edition] finally gives every single destination the lavish visual treatment it has always deserved. The oversized
1,000 Places to See Before You Die: The World as You’ve Never Seen It Before is a feast of fantasy in coffee table proportions. . . . [There are] 1,000 reasons the book’s new edition makes for a beautifully inspiring addition to our library.”
“Both the information and the presentation — more than 1,000 color photos pack the 532 thick, glossy pages — are a vast departure from the no-nonsense original [edition of
1,000 Places to See Before You Die]. . . . The packaging is undoubtedly prettier, but the DNA of the book remains the same. It’s the ultimate travel wish list.”
