Who Travels Sees More: Artists, Architects and Archaeologists Discover Egypt and the Near East
Oxbow Books, 2007 - Travel - 202 pages
"Who lives sees much, who travels sees more" . The Arab proverb is an appropriate title for this latest collection of essays published by the Association for the Study of Travel in Egypt and the Near East on its tenth anniversary. The desire to see what lay beyond the familiar landscapes of home shaped the lives of all the travellers discussed here. Their backgrounds and training as artists of one sort or another mean that they responded to what they saw in visual ways - in many cases taking the revelations of their travels home with them to inspire their own work.
