Page from Il Milione

Marco Polo called his 13th-century travelogue of the Marvels of the World in Italian Il Milione or Oriente Poliano. 

Driven by the same curiosity for the new and the unexplored, we are researching the history of famous historic hotels. We are producing fine books about them and update these books frequently.

We love what we are doing, we are historians, writers, story- and history-tellers. 

We became a faithful companion of educated travellers. Please take your time and browse our book catalogue. We appreciate your custom, we are glad that you are here.

Dear wonderful Readers;

With our books about The Most Famous Hotels in the World we are changing the way people look at famous hotels. Our exhibitions at famous hotels open doors into a fascinating past. Enjoy our research, we have done everything imaginable to turn it into wonderful and entertaining books.

 

This season, for example, at Half Moon, Jamaica, chairman Guy Steuart and general manager Sandro Fabris present our THE HALF MOON TREASURY — Secrets of A Legendary Resort (a Treasury Paperback).

 

The new STRAND YANGON (Classic Edition) appeared recentely. In SO SINGAPORE (Individual Books) we worked with Tony Chisholm, employing elements designed by Isabel Miaja and Karl Lagerfeld. The Mandarin Oriental RITZ MADRID (Classic Edition) presents an updated English and a Spanish edition under general manager Christian Tavelli.

In Paris, general manager Gerald R. Krischek-Cruypelans publishes with us PRINCE DE GALLES in an exceptional coffee-table book (Edition Raconteur). 

Have a save journey!
