The Silk Roads, publication

The new edition of this masterful book, by Peter Frankopan (adapted by him for a younger readership) will be published on 4th October. To celebrate publication, Bloomsbury have animated some of Neil Packer’s illustrations and the result is really effective. Neil has cleverly used different styles in the book to highlight different cultures and periods. Here are his Aztecs. Watch the film here. And buy the book here.
