A lavishly illustrated account of human journeys with a foreword by Simon Reeve, from Ancient Persian couriers to the ascent of Everest, the invention of Concorde, and the voyage into space itself.

Human journeys have arisen from all manner of impulse, from migration and the search for food, to pilgrimages, trade, scientific curiosity, or simply the quest for adventure. Journey is a stunning visual guide to the stories of human movement and endeavour - from the first trade networks in ancient Sumer to the epic Voyager missions. Follow in humanity's footsteps around the globe with exciting accounts of history's most famous, significant, and thrilling journeys.

Discover biographies of conquerors, explorers, and travellers, stories of scientific discovery and technological innovation, literary journals, stunning works of art, and catalogues of travel-related memorabilia and documents, such as passports, postcards, and portmanteaux.

This truly worldwide account is a glorious celebration of human journeys.
