Humboldt Books
Globetrotter
 
Every journey leaves a trail of souvenirs, memories, impressions, notepads and digital shots. Hence, the Globetrotter series brings together other potential forms of travel, ranging from architecture to town-planning, from botany to cookery, grand tours to alternative guides, as well as artistic and archive research. A kaleidoscope which eludes any precise definition and which welcomes all possible forms of the journey.
