Book Review: The Art of Travel
When I picked up The Art of Travel, I knew absolutely nothing about the book, so I just naturally assumed that the book was about how to travel. Turns out it's about the actual ART of Travel - as in, art depicting travel.
The book is about how art portrays travel vs how we actually experience it, and how art can make us notice things we wouldn't have normally. Like the beauty of airports or gas stations or railway stations.
Or how a place we would normally not even give a second glance can be made beautiful by an artist pointing out the special details:
The book is an incredible philosophical analysis of travel through the lens of painters, artists, and poets. I highly recommend it!
