Somebody asked about a photo book of the camino but, although I have searched the forums, I can't find the post.
I bought a book in Pamplona called THE WAY OF SAINT JAMES by Endiciones A.m.
You can order it from Mundicamino at http://www.mundicamino.com/
Click on the English flag, then on the left side of the page, under SHOP, click on books.
It falls under Guides and although it does offer 33 stages with a small strip map at the start of each stage, it is not a guide book in the true sense of the word.
It is a glossy, picture book with beautiful photographs of the Camino Frances. It costs 20 euro.

Or you could even make one of your own.

UK readers could try http://www.bobbooks.co.uk/ who will turn your own photos into a printed book. Looks a bit pricey, but it's a nice idea.

I'm sure there will be others elsewhere more practically located for non-UK readers.

PS I have no connection with this company, nor have I used them yet so cannot personally recommend.

Hi Sil and Mike,
I'm not sure what pilgrims are looking for re photo book of the Camino. However I do have a beautiful book, given to me by a French pilgrim with whom I walked for 2 weeks in 2005, and we kept in contact; I visited her earlier this year when she gave me the book.
The book has photographs from the Camino Frances but starts with the routes in France, including Brittany and other areas. It is laid out day by day with a meditation for each day (365). The short thoughts/meditations for each day are in French (I don't know if there is an English translation) but the photos give plenty of scope for thought, and they are really beautiful. The price shown on the back of the book is 28 Euros.
Title: 365 Meditations sur les chemins de Compostelle.
Presses de la Renaissance Paris 2006
ISBN 978-2-7509-0245-2

Hope this is helpful to somebody.
Happy Christmas to all our readers! :D
Brendan
