The World of Departures

BHD 45.000

Elegant, Entertaining, Enlightening, En Point: Departures magazine believes that the best is defined not by its price tag but by its quality, rarity, and truly one-of-a-kind discoveries. Explore the world through the eyes of this luxury lifestyle magazine—seen until now only by American Express Platinum and Centurion card members who receive the publication. It’s the definitive source for travel, art, culture, and design presented through serious journalism and mindblowing photography. The World of Departures celebrates the magazine’s twenty-five years with the best of its awardwinning articles, photography, and illustrations. Travel from Richard David Story’s first issue following 9/11 from the Elephant Festival in Jaipur to to Big Horn, Montana, for the annual Crow Fair, a weeklong celebration and powwow, and as described by photographer Lisa Eisner, “…the Native American version of the Paris couture shows, only better because the regalia are delicately hand-stitched by mothers and grandmothers and passed down for generations.”
