What a gift Let’s Get Lost has been. It sat on my Edelweiss shelf, almost unassuming, as if it didn’t want to take up too much space (humanizing books, now? Why, yes), and it caught my eye because of the promise in the title. Let’s Get Lost, it said—neither in the neighborhood nor after making a wrong turn, but truly lost.
Eric Dregni has put together an excellent little book. Armed with an interest in oddities and a camera to snap away at roadside attractions, Dregni states he began researching when he was young. The Impossible Road Trip is the result of years of hard work and dedication, sprinkled with hilarity. It’s Americana incarnated.

Annerino is so talented I wonder where to start. America’s Outback, his latest book, showcases his skills with a camera, bringing pictures to life.
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.
Amazing Art Adventures does indeed feature a lot of amazing art. Zappaterra put together a comprehensive book featuring a lot of different installments, museums, and exhibitions. Doubling down as a travel guide, it touches every continent and showcases many of the best art pieces worldwide.
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.
