Photography is half the story when it comes to making travel guides, it’s an essential part of inspiring our readers and showing them what’s on offer in a place, and when it comes to book covers we have to choose carefully. It’s this photo that will catch a reader’s eye, inspire them to pick up our guide and start exploring parts of the world unknown to them.
We’ve all got our favourites here, whether it’s the serene sunset on our China guide, or the bright summery flowers on our Rough Guide to Provence, but perhaps you’ve taken a photo you think is worthy of a guidebook cover? Ever snapped a stunning landscape you just can’t resist showing to all your friends? Or perhaps you got a great candid shot of a cow looking right into your lens like our Scottish Highlands and Islands cover?
