New for 2018:
Route 66 Then and Now
The four-million-selling Then and Now series has been "on the road" in 2017 to bring you the latest themed Then and Now.
Though Pavilion Books' trademark series is known for its coverage of major cities in the US, Europe and Australasia, there are some best-selling themed Then and Nows in the line-up. These include Ballparks Then and Now, the Civil War Then and Now, and most recently Train Stations Then and Now. The Route 66 locations have been selected by former radio broadcaster and Route 66 guru Joe Sonderman and the major locations along the 2,250-mile, eight-state route are all covered. Publication date: June 2018
Perth Then and Now
Perth in Western Australia might not have a reputation as being a hotbed of history buffs, but former Heritage Perth Director Richard Offen has certainly unleashed an interest in the subject in his adopted home city.
Because in its first year of publication Perth Then and Now has sold close to 10,000 copies and is still going strong. It's already sold more copies than the bigger Australian cities of Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. What's more, bulk copies of the title have been bought by local schools and it is now used as a teaching aid in class.
"It's been a very gratifying response," said Richard Offen, who has been tasked with a follow-up book documenting the lost architectural gems of the city.
