Reviews

"Deep dive into the inner workings of your favorite literary world in this beautiful coffee table book."--The New York Post
"This fascinating (and beautifully designed) book looks at how novels' settings impact their plot, character, and tone."--Refinery29
"Part of the attraction of most classic novels is their strong sense of place... [Literary Landscapes] delves into the geography, location, and terrain of 50 beloved books - from Joyce's Dublin to Harper Lee's Monroeville, Ala."--The New York Times Book Review, 'New & Noteworthy'
"[Literary Landscapes] is gorgeously illustrated, wide-ranging, and very pleasingly idiosyncratic.... Readers will be reminded throughout of what a vital role location plays in virtually everything they read, and the generous artwork of Literary Landscapes will help to send that reminder home."--Open Letters Review
