Mark Elliott is an English travel writer best known for books on Azerbaijan,[1][2][3] and for unusual map-based route guides for Asia. Though long out of print, Asia Overland [4] co-authored with Wil Klass garnered something of a cult following among overland travellers during the late 1990s[5]. Elliott's 2003 Southeast Asia Graphic Guide, also based mostly on schematic maps, remains in considerable demand among travellers with prices for second hand copies reaching absurdly high levels (nearly US$1000 a copy in November 2009[6][7]). He graduated from Durham University where he was President of the Durham Union Society and worked on the university newspaper Palatinate at the same time as Tim Burt, Dave Anderson and Jeremy Vine.
