MELBOURNE, April 13 (UPI) -- Travel guide book company Lonely Planet has compiled a guide detailing more than 100 of the world's finest toilets.
"Toilets: A Spotter's Guide" offers a collection of photos and stories about interesting and extravagant toilets across the world.
"Whatever you prefer to call them – lavatory, loo, bog, khasi, thunderbox, dunny, bathroom, restroom, washroom or water closet – toilets are a (sometimes opaque, often wideopen) window into the secret soul of a destination," the book's description states.
The book features a wide array of toilets from artistically striking, metropolitan structures to wooden outposts in remote deserts.
"The lavatory is the great leveler," the books introduction states. "Everyone feels the call of nature, everyday but, like any common species being ubiquitous doesn't make it uniform."
