Legendary Routes of the World takes its readers on a splendid pop-up journey through the planet's most famous itineraries: Aeropostale, the pioneering airborne mail delivery system connecting France with South America; the transatlantic yacht race dubbed the Rhum Route; the Silk Road connecting the Asian continent's east and west; Route 66 in the United States, ingrained in popular culture as the setting for countless travel narratives; and the impressive 1969 lunar expedition.
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. Influenced by the writing of Jack Kerouac and Jack London, as well as the comics of Hugo Pratt, Alexandre Verhille creates illustrated maps for a variety of international newspapers and magazines.
