l was given this beautiful book by a dear friend of mine as a birthday gift. Having untied the pretty bow, and unwrapped the elegant paper, l found myself immediately bowled over by the spellbinding illustrations and amusing anecdotes.

When Wanderers Cease to Roam – A Traveler’s Journal of Staying Put by Vivian Swift is not simply a journal, or a travel memoir, but a unique reading experience, reflecting personal adventures and the enjoyment of “staying put” within the cycle of a year, from January through to December. As a designer, l find the hand-written style most visually striking, and have decided to read each chapter month by month…here’s to October – l wonder what treasures are awaiting to be discovered?
