The Passport Book

Author(s): Nicola von Velsen


This highly entertaining, fact-filled book reproduces the passport covers of every single country that issues its own travel document. It clearly illustrates how varied passports can be, despite the guidelines established by the International Civil Aviation Organization. Arranged by continent, each country's entry includes a full-color reproduction of its passport cover as well as brief information, including its location on the world map, flag, population, population density, political status, GDP and per capita income, official languages, and visa index. In an increasingly globalized world in which a passport has become one of the most important credentials we possess, this compendium conveys the symbolic power of these documents, and the fascinating stories behind their designs and development.
