About Jan Gordon

Jan and Cora Gordon were an exceptionally talented couple who wrote twelve captivating books about their travels between 1916 and 1933. Working as artists in Paris, they met and married there in 1909- on the outbreak of WW1 they joined the Red Cross and found themselves in the Balkans. After the war they returned to Paris and combined their literary and artistic skills to write and illustrate their first travel book about Spain. Success followed success and during the twenties they wrote books about their wanderings on foot in Balkans, France, Portugal, and Sweden. In the late 1920s their growing international reputations led to a grand tour in the USA and further popular books on art, as well as several novels.
