Books About Passports

Lebanese designer Marwan Kabour has designed a set of five books that take on different aspects of international travel.  The books are his response to what he sees as the restricting of travel throughout the world:

PASS/PORT is a set of 5 books in the form of passports that critically investigate the different parts of the travel process. The project attempts to represent the ways the travel document embodies the very essence of restriction rather than allows passage. Our political borders are as closed as ever at a time when our notion of the world is that of a global village or an open city.

 This is a great lead-in for a book review  one of my favorite books of 2011  The Passport: A History of Man's most Traveled Document
