“Lots” of the world to see with Marc Martin

marc-martin-lotsMarc Martin’s latest book is a stunner. It’s a large-format hardback that will tempt adults and children alike, telling us about people and wildlife and buildings and food and oh-so-many other things in cities and countries around the world. Marc’s gorgeous illustrations take us from Antarctica to the Galapagos Islands, from Moscow to Rio de Janeiro, filling us with facts along the way. (Take a look at Cape Town below.) The book is a beautiful treat, a perfect gift.

Lots – Marc Martin – HB – Viking – $25
