Acclaimed illustrator James Gulliver Hancock has an obsession with re-imaging his world with his drawings. His extensive travels are a key part of his creative drive. Combined with his obsession with scale and detail, it has culminated in Gulliver's New Travels, a stunning creative colouring book that is a modern take on the 18th-century Gulliver's Travels, playing with scale as in the land of Lilliput and the giants of Brobdingnag.

Taking in places from around the world, from all landscapes, and even future worlds and those in galaxies far away, the illustrations are playful, fanciful but always wonderful to look at. And James's illustrations are crying out for a dash of colour. He wants you to engage with the drawings and make them your own with pens, pencils, paints and more. As you colour in, you'll discover great little details you hadn't spotted before, such as the diver swimming through the flowers and the tiny climber scaling a cactus.

A major creative talent provides a wonderful book to share with those with a passion for colour.

Raised in Australia, James Gulliver Hancock is now based in both Brooklyn, New York and his beach studio in Sydney. His print work has been used by Coca- Cola, Ford Motors, Herman Miller, the New York Times and Simon and Schuster. He is particularly known for his personal project All The Buildings in New York.

We were quartered on a Nile steamer, moored to the dock, as the hotels were crowded. We had hardly landed on the deck when the flies lit on us in swarms. In all parts of the world I had encountered flies that held the record for abandoned cruelty to man, but they were white-winged angels of peace compared to these tarantulas! They stuck and hung and dug into your flesh with apparent glee. You have whips, whisks, fans and bunches of twigs to chase and defeat them, but it's all no use. You kill a dozen and a hundred take their place. -from "Egypt" Much more than a missive from exotic ports of call, this delightful 1909 travelogue is like taking a long and agreeable sea voyage with a smart, snarky friend. Bayne, who distained "post-card mania" but revels in roundabout stories and clever character sketches, treats us to his wonderful, witty observations of such far-off places as Cadiz, Alhambra, Constantinople, the Dead Sea, Messina, Pompeii, Monte Carlo, and much more. Set sail in a round-the-world cruise without ever leaving home... and journey back in time to a more elegant era when every vacation was an adventure. OF INTEREST TO: armchair travelers, readers of early-20th-century literature American author SAMUEL GAMBLE BAYNE (1844-1924) also wrote On an Irish Jaunting-Car: Through Donegal and Connemara (1902) and Quicksteps Through Scandinavia, With a Retreat from Moscow (1908).
