“This is the travel photography book for our digital age. Tom's incredible eye for capturing historical detail creates captivating imagery for the ultimate in escapist pleasure.” - Kelly Wearstler, Interior Designer

“A true Renaissance man, Tom shares his vast architectural knowledge, artistic talent, and sense of humor in photographs and watercolors.”
- Amy Astley, editor-in-chief, Architectural Digest

 

This book is a celebration of the power of the smartphone camera combined with Thomas A. Kligerman's unique eye. Tom is a New York architect who adores travel and the different cultures of the world, recording vibrant details and evocative scenes on his device as he journeys from India to New Mexico, from Beaux-Arts monuments to rustic barns, from ocean to mountaintop.

The images have been curated into dynamic pairs that spark a conversation about the world and the different ways of seeing it. They are accompanied by Tom's reflections, and those of his Instagram followers, in a series of captions, comments and mini essays.

More inspiration from the digital world come in the form of QR codes, used throughout the book to transport readers from the printed page to sites in the online universe, in a magical mystery tour of stimulating experience. Readers will never know what to expect or what they will find.

This book is a child of the pandemic, a time when people could only dream of traveling or relive past experiences, as Tom has done, from his camera roll. It rejoices in both the potential of new media and the physical pleasure given by a beautifully made and structured book, a new take on the notion of armchair travel – exuberant, witty and expert.
