UNDERGROUND WORLDS
Bibliophile price: £7.50
50 unusual destinations that take some digging to find, from bone-filled catacombs to sculpted salt churches, hand-carved cave complexes large enough to house 20,000 people, a 1970s hippie commune with walls bedecked in gold leaf, mirrors and colourful psychedelic murals to Churchill's War Rooms in London. With stunning colour photos on every page, readers can see places we could not even imagine such as a three-storey underground train station in Taiwan that is home to the 4,500 panel 'dome of light' which is the largest glasswork on earth, as well as secret spaces such as an ornate temple built beneath a suburban home in Italy. We travel to the Cave Bar in Croatia, Basilica Cistern in Turkey, Dambulla Cave Temple in Sri Lanka, the Cheyenne Mountain Complex in Colorado and throughout the fascinating text are themed entries of underground systems such as the 2,500 year old water tunnels of Kish Qanat in Iran, or engineering marvels like the New York City steam tunnels. One of the magnificent full page colour plates is of the chandeliered vaulted ceiling with ornate plasterwork in a subway station in Moscow. 240pp, 19 x 27cm, colour.
