Snapshots, passenger lists, itineraries, and postcards: From Cairo to Burma and back again, authors Barbara Levine and Kirsten Jensen transport readers back to the dawn of world travel when the middle class toured the world for the first time. In beautifully designed pages Around the World traces the development of the travel photo album. The book features a wealth of turn-of-the-twentieth-century photographs and ephemera, evoking the pleasures of a time when the surroundings were taken in slowly and travel was an art of itself.
