Byline: Beth J. Harpaz Associated Press By Beth J. Harpaz Associated Press

NEW YORK -- Whether you're planning a trip in the new year and need some practical advice, or you'd like to give a coffee-table book filled with inspirational photos to someone on your Christmas list, there's a travel-themed book for you. Here are a few recently published books to consider, including the relaunch of Frommer's guidebooks.

Food and travel

Many travelers are passionate about food, whether it's enjoying that perfect meal on vacation or hunting down authentic local cuisine. Travel + Leisure magazine's "Where to Eat Around the World" ($35) spotlights food in 27 destinations in a coffee-table book, from the lunch canteens and taverns of Istanbul to barbecue in Texas.

There are 10 new Frommer's "Day by Day" guides, which are compact paperbacks ($13.95) with removable maps, packed with everything from sample one-, two- and three-day itineraries, to recommendations for shopping, night life, restaurants, excursions and neighborhood tours. The new "Day by Day" guides cover New York City, San Francisco, Honolulu and Oahu, Prague, London, New Orleans, Paris, Rome, Boston and Philadelphia.
