For many moons I've loved Jennifer Hill's work, especially her Places I've Never Been Series. For the series she imagines vacations to places she's never been. Researching the culture, food, traditions and people, she creates a design based on her findings and musings. You can search for all of the places she's done here.
Her 2010 calendar is a great gift for travelers, dreamers and people who like pretty things.
