‘1,000 Places to See Before You Die’ Deluxe Edition: An Exclusive Look Inside
Ever since its first publication in 2003, 1,000 Places to See Before You Die has been a travel classic. Millions of people have mined the pages of Patricia Schultz’s chunky paperback for ideas for where to go and what to dream about. The bestseller inspired spinoff titles and even a Travel Channel television series, but for the first time, a hardcover published edition finally gives every single destination the lavish visual treatment it has always deserved. The oversized 1,000 Places to See Before You Die: The World As You've Never Seen It Before (Artisan Books) is a feast of fantasy in coffee table proportions. Exclusively for Frommer’s, Schultz hand-picked some of her favorite palaces from her lush new deluxe edition as a special excerpt. You could call it 10 Palaces to See Before You Die. We call it a mere 1% sample of the 1,000 reasons the book’s new edition makes for a beautifully inspiring addition to our library.
All items were excerpted from the deluxe edition of 1,000 Places to See Before You Die (Artisan Books).
