During the last days I read a lot about the International E-road network in Europe. Since I'm a big road trip fan, I really would like to follow more or less one road in the near future. Does anybody know if there exists a travel guide book (like for example Lonely Planet) that covers one of such roads? I would be interested in information about the details concerning the road trip (what visas are necessary, what permits do I need to take my own car into the country, etc.) as well as the sightseeing in the area of the road.

I'm particularly interested in E58, E60, E75 and E40.

For example I have a Lonely Planet book at home that covers a trip from Istanbul to Kathmandu. I'm wondering if there is something similar like that that follows a E route.

I found another interesting book called Great Journeys, but I´m still looking for a E-road network book.

I don't expect there's a guide book. But there may be something from an auto club or aimed at campers and caravaners. If not just supplement your travel guide with a road atlas you can buy anywhere. I bought mine at a petrol station on the edge of Berlin. – hippietrail Oct 31 '11 at 8:28
Great question btw, inspired in me a lot of ideas for future trips ;) – victoriah Nov 2 '11 at 21:14
Yes there are some nice ideas ;) – RoflcoptrException Nov 5 '11 at 20:44
I added a bounty to this question to get more attention. The current answer is not bad, but not exactly what I'm looking for. – RoflcoptrException Jan 9 '12 at 10:06
In the UK the "E" numbers are never on sign posts or normal maps. In most of the UK the "E" numbers are often not signed. – Ian Ringrose Jun 21 at 15:23

The belgian tv production company Woestijnvis, has a daily "news show" called Man bijt hond (Man bites dog). In this daily show they have odd items.

Last year they followed two guys who drove from Calais 8500 km to the end of the E40. A brief search on google, didn't show the existence of a DVD of this road doco. Maybe you could write them and ask if they have the series available.
