This travel book takes readers on a whistle-stop tour of the world, as seen through the eyes of writers, photographers, filmmakers, composers, painters, sculptors, and philosophers.
The global and artistic odyssey flies from the tropical paradise of Gauguin’s Tahiti to the Beatles’ hippie enclave in Rishikesh, from the ghoulish wilderness of Arthur Conan Doyle’s Dartmoor to Wittgenstein’s snow-bound fjord hideaway, and from the hashish dens of Paul Bowles’ Morocco to the Wild West of Sergio Leone.
50 Great Escapes also features a global directory of 21st-century hotspots, allowing budding artists to experience a creative epiphany of their own.
‘If you are a dreamer, thinker, wanderer or just a searching soul, this is a book for you.’

‘A refreshingly intelligent and visually arresting tour of the planet.’
