Review:

A lovely coffee table style gift book that is both a memoir of places of pilgrimage visited by the author, as well as short highlights about the places.

The illustrations are beautiful watercolours that are highlighted by their simplicity of detail, being largely colour wash and block work and yet so deeply evocative for that.

Here is a book that with it's simplcity of detail and information encourages you to visit these places of pilgrimage.
What is also quite nice is that these are not just the obvious christian places of pilgrimage, but just places that may spark the heart... so Barter Books at Alnwick gets a deserved look in!
