The author has tracked down life-changing locations-from cities and remote deserts to gardens and cafés-and recounts their transformative power over some of the worlds greatest artists. The result is a global and artistic odyssey that takes readers from the tropical paradise of Gauguins Tahiti to the Beatles hippie enclave in Rishikesh, and from the hashish dens of Paul Bowles Morocco to the Wild West of Sergio Leone.

Each entry features color photographs, practical travel advice, and information on exhibitions, festivals, and museums. The book also includes a global directory of twenty-first-century hotspots, allowing budding artists to experience a creative epiphany of their own.

Travellers planning a trip around an intriguing location, aspiring artists looking for a retreat, and fans keen to explore the stories behind their favorite works will find this guide an entertaining and valuable resource.Jonathan Lee is a contributor to the BBC, The Guardian, The Financial Times, Time Out and other travel-related and art publications.
