Full Description

“Road all about it!” – The Sun

“One of the most original, crazy, informative and enjoyable books to appear for a long time: this guide is utterly appealing” – Sarah Anderson,Travel Bookshop

“The most eccentric and fascinating guidebook we have ever seen” – John Sandoe Bookshop

“Delightful” – Woman’s Hour

A decade-old obsession for Dutchman Pieter Boogaart resulted in a guidebook that looks like no other, to a subject never before fully explored: the A272. Three continuous texts wind their way through the book, simultaneously exploring the A272 itself and the countryside it passes through; extra commentary is provided in yet another level of text. Hundreds of colour photographs complete this homage to the ‘epitome of England’. After eight reprintings, now in a fully revised, updated, improved FOURTH edition and – naturally – 272 pages long!
