Journey of Discovery Book

Right from the start, those of us following Land Rover’s Journey of Discovery asked the company to produce a book that highlighted the team’s 50-day journey from Birmingham to Beijing. Well, Land Rover has delivered. Not only did the company print up a batch, the publisher has made available an e-book that you can see below. We’re still a little old-fashioned in that we love the smell of fresh ink and the feel of paper, so we’re going to be finding out where we can get our hands on the real deal. We’re assuming it will be made available through Land Rover retailers and probably other standard outlets like Amazon and B&N.

Not only are there great photos, but also additional info on the expedition, the team, and the 1,000,000th Discovery. 

In the meantime, you can get a sneak peek at the making of the book over at Behance. FP Creative out of London provided graphic design, web design, and creative direction on the project, but it was Land Rover’s photographers that did the heavy lifting. Along the way, the team took over 17,500 photographs, some of which we have featured here on RoverGuide. Not only are there great photographs in the book, but there are also statistics, more background information on the team, “behind the scenes” material, historical background, and more.

The book numbers 132 pages in length and is very well presented.
