Recently, I came across one of the best books that I have ever seen about Mallorca and I wanted to share my excitement with you. The large-scale, heavy book presents the photographic results of a circumnavigation of Mallorca, covering an extract from thousands of photographs taken by a German photographer over three days in July 2010. The photographer took about 20,000 images of the complete coastline of this gorgeous island, all taken from the same perspective and covering the entire length of all 550 kilometres of Mallorca’s coastline, metre by metre. The journey started in Port d’Andratx and continued to Palma, S’Arenal, Cap Blanc, Es Trenc, Cala d’Or, Porto Colom, Porto Cristo, Punta de Capdepera, Peninsula de Llevant, Port d’Alcúdia, Port de Pollença, Cap de Formentor, Sa Calobra, Port de Sóller, Deià, Banyalbufar, Sant Elm and Sa Dragonera. I have circumnavigated Mallorca a number of times myself if in the opposite direction, some ten years ago, and I wished I could do it again any time soon. The circumnavigation is truly spectacular in real life as well as in the published version. You can now do an armchair-circumnavigation in the comfort of your home.
The book contains 20 pages of text in English, Spanish and German plus 300 pages of large format horizontal photographs. It was published a few months ago by DuMont publishers and retails at 64 €. If you have difficulties finding the publishing feat in your local bookshop, it is also available from Amazon.
