Week 27: Scavenger Hunt, In Two French Cities...

   The book-of-the-week for Week 27 continues the Scavenger Hunt series with another hunt, In Two French Cities... The cased-in cover has vintage silk bookcloth on the spine and a monoprint paper on the boards. The title plate is the same linoleum block print image from Finding the Caves, with letterpress 24-point Goudy Oldstyle type for the title.

the cover...

Inside, a single page spread comprises the text, which is 19 scavenger hunt challenges that start in Olite, Spain... move into Bordeaux, France... and continue in Paris, France. They are digitally printed over a Google® map of the route from Olite, Spain to the Gare Saint Jean railway station, in Bordeaux, France.

In Two French Cities, the third book in the Scavenger Hunt series, continues the game theme and can be played with or without the other books. However, a pencil, a map of Bordeaux, a map of Paris, some euros, and a rental car are needed.
