About the book

Explore the world one step at a time. Wanderlust presents legendary walking routes with inviting maps, practical tips, and inspiring landscape photographs. The exciting Canyon Trail in Zion-National Park, the spectacular El Caminito del Rey in Spain, the pilgrim trail on the holy Kumano Kodo in Japan or a mythical hiking path in the land of the giants in Norway - Wanderlust explores legendary hiking trails in enchanting corners of the world and over a variety of terrain: thin ice and desert sands; coastal tracks and forest pathways. Spectacular photography illustrates journeys to sharp summits, astonishing vistas, and phenomenal locales. With maps featuring noteworthy locations alongside background information and practical tips by Cam Honan, an expert who has hiked many of the trails himself, Wanderlust will suit both intrepid beginners and seasoned trekkers. From modern-day transcendentalists or those who simply desire a casual break from concrete scenery, Wanderlust allows readers to live vicariously through vivid portraits or use the trips as impetus for their own hiking journey. Following faded footsteps of migrating animals or paths of ancient trade routes, the trails featured in Wanderlust offer both outdoor exploration and enjoyment.

Gestalten Biography

Gestalten is an independent publishing house based in Berlin, Germany.

History

The three friends Robert Klanten, Markus Hollmann-Loges and Andreas Peyerl moved to Berlin in the early 1990s. They rapidly came into contact with the Berlin techno and rave scene, initially designing flyers, posters and record covers for music labels and events such as the Love Parade. In 1994, they conceived a book about techno-art, documenting the visual aspects of technoculture.In order to gauge the market interest, they started to produce order cards, to be distributed through techno magazines. They received over 1000 orders, through which they were able to obtain a loan, which facilitated the production and release of their first book, The Localizer 1.0. This led to the foundation of Die Gestalten publishing house in 1995. The name was later changed to gestalten. The word means to shape, or to create in German. The number of publications increased as of 1997. As of 1998, their focus shifted away from music towards books showcasing graphic design. The following years continued this trend, with the majority of books covering design and art themes as well as publishing books about architecture, food culture, travel, motorbikes and bicycles. Since its conception, the publishing house has focused on the international market, publishing in English for a global audience.Gestalten has been led solely by Robert Klanten since the departure of his co-founders Markus Hollmann-Loges and Andreas Peyerl in 2008. The company has collaborated with global brands including Marvel, Monocle, MTV and Apple as well as leading creatives such as Dieter Rams. The company remains independent, with investor MairDumont and Klanten holding 50% of the shares each.
