Today we have a feature on a wonderful book called Literary Landscapes. The book is a huge adventure, learning about favourite places from books we have grown up with.

Some stories couldn’t happen just anywhere or any time – often the scenery, landscape or era is as central to the tale as any character – and just as easily recognised. What adventures would Heidi have had without her mountain neighbours? Would Jim Hawkins have experienced such an adventure had he not lived in mid – 1700s England? Literary Landscapes brings together an eclectic collage of over 50 familiar literary worlds paired with original maps and archive material, as well as illustrations and photography.
In this collection of essays the reader will follow Leopold Bl oom’s footsteps around Dublin, become immerse d in Les Misérable’s revolutionary Paris, feel the chill wind of Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights, and hear the churning paddles of Mississippi steamboats in Mark Twain’s Huckleberry Finn.
The landscapes of enduring fictional characters and literary legends are vividly brought to life, evoking all the sights and sounds of the original works. For anyone who ever dreamt of escaping every day, Literary Landscapes will transport you to the greatest places in literature.
♥ Review ♥
Literary Landscapes is a must for any book lover. It is fascinating to read about some of our much love places, who are as much a part of the story as the characters.
From Winnie the Pooh to my favourite The Little House on the Prairie. You will not be disappointed. There is a land for everyone to reminisce and revisit for a while. The quality of the book is superb. It is the perfect gift for the holidays coming up soon too.
I also adore the cover, with the illustrations by Jim Tierney. The naked book is a beautiful blue colour with white font.
I truly love this book and I will be picking it up time and again to explore the delectable and memorable Literary Landscapes.
