Travel facts spreads for an entire series of Reader's Digest Condensed Books on travel adventure titles.
Each of the 17 titles is an abridged version of a travelogue by a well-known writer. For each I provided a spread titled Travel Facts, so that readers can find out about visiting the region or country by themselves. I summed up the highlights and practicalities of making a visit.
The titles were:
- Walking Across Europe (adapted from Clear Waters Rising by Nicholas Crane)
- The Way to the Stars (adapted from Apollo 13 by Jim Lovell and Jeffrey Luger)
