Description from the publisher:
James Rumford, himself a world traveler, has retold Ibn Battuta"s story in words and pictures, adding the element of ancient Arab maps—maps as colorful and evocative as a Persian miniature, as intricate and mysterious as a tiled Moroccan wall. Into this arabesque of pictures and maps is woven the story not just of a traveler in a world long gone but of a man on his journey through life.
James Rumford is a writer, illustrator, and maker of fine books. He lives in Honolulu, Hawaii.
