In Wild Spaces and Unique Places, the rough aesthetic of nature triumphs.
This is a very peculiar book. One I savored for a long while, because it’s fascinating, both in concept and in storytelling. Did you know that there’s a glacier tucked away in Scotland? Or a desert in Spain? I was aware about the latter, and of course the existence of the Hungarian steppe is common knowledge, but the glacier stumped me. Same with the Białowieża, a primeval Polish forest.
Santini and Di Filippo, two Italian expats who run @prettylittlelondon on Instagram, have put together a book featuring both cool, instagrammable pictures and activities to do when you’re visiting London.

Natural Landmarks of Arizona is an odd one out, in a good way. As promised on the tin, it takes us roadtripping--mountaintripping?-- across the great state of Arizona, and it does so while giving us interesting tidbits about the territory. From geological info to historical ones, Yetman covers all aspects of each cliff and hill.
AofVP, written by Travis Elborough, is a comprehensive book based on places that have either faded away already or are on the brink of fading. Divided in four sections (Ancient Cities, Forgotten Lands, Shrinking Places, and Threatened Worlds), it gives us a broad impression of cities and locations scattered around the world.

Siobhan takes us on an aesthetic trip, featuring storefronts, boutiques, a hidden but glamorous corner. It’s a feast for the eyes, paired with interesting info and practical tips.
Backroads of the Great American West is delightful. Delightful. I asked for it the moment it dropped on Netgalley, expecting a wild ride (with pictures!) across the US, and I wasn’t disappointed.
