Travel Story Contest Announced by Greystone Books

Share Article

Tell your travel story for a chance to win a collection of travel books from Greystone Books, publisher of Barbara Hodgson's Trading in Memories: Travels Through a Scavenger's Favourite Places.

Found Art: A photo, a memory, a story. Writer and designer Barbara Hodgson captures perfect moments in time from her travels around the world in her new book Trading in Memories.

She cherishes the little things: the angel in a cemetery, the street vendor in a crowded market, the package of letters bought for a few dollars.

Barbara Hodgson creates a collage of found art and travel stories about lost and found art picked up off the street, treasures discovered at flea markets and documents uncovered from between the pages of other finds.

Travel, found art and adventures in markets, bookstores, cemeteries and courtyards form a rich mix of stories in the book, Trading in Memories, published by Greystone Books.
