Legendary Routes of the World
Legendary Routes of the World takes its readers on a splendid pop-up journey through some of the planet’s most famous itineraries.
The volume brings to life five legendary routes and expeditions with masterful, awe-inspiring paper engineering.
It includes the pioneering Aéropostale, which was the first French airborne mail delivery system that connected France with South America; the transatlantic single-handed yacht race dubbed the Rhum Route; the Silk Road connecting the Asian continent’s east and west through trade; Route 66 in the United States, which is ingrained in popular culture as the setting for countless travel narratives; and the impressive lunar expedition of 1969.
Each one of these legendary routes is inventively presented as a double-page pop-up spread accompanied by interesting anecdotes and information. This is a visually striking gift book whose clever engineering and iconic illustrations inspire wonder in both children and adults.
