The Ghosts of Travel Past

AS THE INTERNET OVERFLOWS with personal travelogues and off-the-cuff photos taken by people documenting their lives around the world, it’s hard to imagine a time when travel journals were mostly private, introspective things.

But a new book, Around the World, moves to remind our generation of a more intimate art with a gorgeous collection of antique travel snapshots and found reflective scribblings dating back to the 19th century. Brooklyn’s The Morning News has the story, including a photo gallery and an interview with Barbara Levine, who co-authored the book with well-known travel writer Kirsten Jensen.
