Lonely Planet, one of my go to sources for travel destination guides, also puts out a variety of more general pictorial guides. These make great coffee table books and gifts.
Over the summer I wrote about a Lonely Plant book (which came out October 6) which picks the top sites in the world. In Ultimate Travel, LP picked and ranked the top 500 sites.
I just received an e-mail that Lonely Planet Best in Travel 2016 has just been released!
