Forty years ago, Ted Simon rode a motorcycle around the world at a time when such long-distance rides were still very rare. Now, his adventure has come alive through his new book Jupiter’s Travels in Camera: The Photographic Record of Ted Simon’s Celebrated Round-The-World Motorcycle Journey, which features more than 300 pictures from Simon’s four-year trip. The book ($49.95) is in a square format, 10 inches by 10 inches, and has 256 pages that convey the spirit of his great adventure.
