Eland Books

Eland Books is a publishing house, established in 1982, that aims to revive the great travel books that have fallen out of print over time. Although the list has diversified out into biography and fiction, the overwhelming majority of the titles are tales of travels far and wide, from the Far East to wartime Italy.
