How do you take a world tour BACK IN TIME? With this unique Vook, engaging text combines with enthralling video and photographs to do just that. Download it now and take an unforgettable journey around the world circa 1892.

From Blarney Castle, Ireland to Washington, D. C., James and Daniel Shepp took their camera to places few people of the Victorian era had seen.

More than 250 images of panoramic views of cities, street scenes, public buildings and everyday life of the people living in these places. Every image is carefully arranged and appropriately explained by James and Daniel Shepp.

Their goal was not to tell stories, but to exhibit through black and white photography, the great sights of the world as they existed at that time. No one has done it quite so impressively since.

First published by Globe Bible publishers in 1892, Shepp’s Photographs of the World was the must-have coffee table book of the Victorian era.
Now it can be yours to experience in a whole new and interactive way!
