Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference. *
Travel publishing from I.B.Tauris is a homage to this ‘Road’ – the less trodden path through the mountains of Tibet to the steppes of Mongolia, the jungles of Brazil and Borneo to the deserts of the Sahara and Gobi; from Tangier to Addis Ababa, Baghdad to Ishfahan, Paris to London, Venice and Istanbul. Offering long-lost gems of classic travel literature by icons such as DH Lawrence and Laurence Durrell, Freya Stark and Edith Wharton, Edward Lear, E.M. Forster and Ralph Waldo Emerson, we also publish works by some of today’s most exciting new talent: the next generation of classics. But common to all our travel books is a powerful evocation of place, and a celebration of the less familiar wonders of our world.
*from The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost (1874–1963)
