    1000 Places to See Before You Die
    Unless you've been living under a rock for the past decade, you've most certainly heard of Patricia Schultz's groundbreaking 1,000 Places to See Before You Die - the ultimate travel bible. Originally published in 2003 after Schultz spent eight years researching and writing the tome, one of the most iconic books and brands of all time will now have a new deluxe format to live alongside its predecessor.

    1,000 Places to See Before You Die: A Photographic Journey will include all the places featured in the 2015 revised edition of the book (organised in the same order), but each of the 1,000 places will include a beautiful photo that brings Schultz's words to life in a completely different way from the original book. From the exquisite French Riviera and Italian lakes to the pyramids of Egypt and Mount Kilimanjaro; to Shanghai's Bund and Singapore's street food; to Kangaroo Island and Bora Bora; to Graceland and the Grand Canyon; to Angel Falls and even the White Continent Antarctica. No matter what page you flip to, an eye-opening experience awaits.

    1,000 Places to See Before You Die: A Photographic Journey is meant to inspire wanderlust, or rather 'wanderlove,' as Schultz describes it. 'I think travel makes you a better person and a more aware global citizen. I know that I cherish it as a privilege and a gift - it lifts me up, lightens me, expands me. Most important, and most simply, travel brings us joy.'

  • Call of the Weird
    Call of the Weird
    After a decade of making documentaries about offbeat characters on the fringes of US society, Louis had the urge to return to America and track down the people who most fascinated him. It would be a reunion tour, but this time without the cameras and the sense of performance being filmed inevitably brings. It would allow him to get closer to people, to discover what really motivated them, what they believed in, and what had happened to the assorted dreamers, outlaws and eccentrics since he last saw them.

    On a journey that took him to the porn sets of Los Angeles, among the UFO contactees of Arizona, and up to far Northern Idaho for a festive get-together of leading neo-Nazis, he asked what 'weird people' have to tell us about our own secret natures. Had he learned anything about himself by being among them? Do we choose our beliefs or do our beliefs choose us?

    Louis Theroux's first book is a hilarious, thought-provoking and at times surreal voyage into the heart of weirdness.
