An ingenious pop-up book that brings to life five legendary routes and expeditions with masterful, awe-inspiring paper engineering. Legendary Routes of the World takes its readers on a splendid pop-up journey through some of the planet’s most famous itineraries. It includes the pioneering Aéropostale, which was the first French airborne mail delivery system that connected France with South America; the transatlantic single-handed yacht race dubbed the Rhum Route; the Silk Road connecting the Asian continent’s east and west through trade; Route 66 in the United States, which is ingrained in popular culture as the setting for countless travel narratives; and the impressive lunar expedition of 1969.
