On the eve of my first vacation in a long while, the Biblio-Mat
throws a curveball, which should surprise no one.
It’s an interesting title as the original plan for this year
was to head to Europe for a trip but instead plans have been sidelined and I’m
now heading to Asia instead to meet up with family. As a reminder of what was
supposed to be, Switzerland is a nice kick in the pants.
|Pretty dustjacket, though.|
|Yep, that's Switzerland.|
Written by John Russell and published in 1950, it does have a
pretty interesting dustjacket. The interior 152 pages contain a nice assortment
of black and white photographs on Switzerland. However the only colour piece
was the title-facing plate.
|Not quite a selling point.|
Reading through a few pages, it’s a little dry but most
travel books are. Who knows, though, perhaps next year Switzerland will be a travel destination.
