A fascinating guide to Van Gogh's itinerant life, with vibrant images and stories about the many places he lived and worked.

This exciting publication familiarises readers of all ages with the many fascinating facets of Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) - artist, correspondent, traveller and modern explorer of Europe's cities and countryside.

Thanks to Van Gogh's wanderlust and the rapid expansion of the railway system in Europe in the late 19th century, Van Gogh covered thousands of miles in his lifetime. He lived and worked in more than 20 locations - from the peaceful countryside of the Netherlands and the south of France to the hustle and bustle of big cities such as London and Paris.

Authors Nienke Denekamp and Rene van Blerk trace his route across Europe from Z to A, beginning in his birthplace of Zundert in the southern Netherlands and ending where he died in Auvers-sur-Oise near Paris. Each location is described with lively and accessible texts, comprehensive timelines, city and country maps, contemporary photographs and related artworks by Van Gogh.

Featuring an eye-catching design, captivating excerpts from his vast body of letters and hundreds of colour images, The Vincent van Gogh Atlas offers a truly unique version of the enduringly compelling story of Van Gogh and instills an appreciation of the many journeys - both literal and figurative - that the artist made throughout his life.

A charming and imaginatively designed book; it might inspire the reader to follow in the artist's footsteps on a pilgrimage-at least through the pages of the book. -Antiques & the Arts Weekly? Antiques and the Arts Weekly This is the perfect gift for the precocious 'tween who wants to be an artist or the reader of any age who enjoys clever, well-made books. Tis one has the bonus of offering geography and history lessons, a travelogue, a biography, a tutorial on the forices that make an artist and visual documentation from Van Gogh's own hand. The handsome hardbound volume has the playful feel of a Tin Tin comic but the heft of a volume befitting the Yale University Press imprint. -Alan Bisbort, Waterbury Republican -- Alan Bisbort Waterbury Republican
