If you’re curious about van life and how to make it work for you, these three new books are a beautiful way to learn. The trendy and romanticized nomadic lifestyle comes with its challenges (where to park, how to build out a van, where to put the dogs), and the people included in each of the three books below share what it’s like and how to make it work. In each book, beautiful photo essays showcase van life around the world, alongside route recommendations and expert advice from the team behind The Lonely Planet, Vanlife Diaries and The Rolling Home Journal. Whether you’re thinking of hitting those back country roads soon, or are searching for the perfect van, each book is worthy of your coffee table. Shop all three books today.
