Above The World
2005. First edition. A very good that appear to have had some moisture damage to the top corner of the text block. The integrity and usability of the book is not affected. A gift inscription to the front free endpaper. The d/w is unclipped and near fine.
See the earth as never before in this brand new book featuring amazing photographic views of the world. The Photographic Atlas of the World is far more than an atlas or a series of aerial photographs. The latest satellite technology has been used to provide images of unparalleled clarity and colour, providing photographs of familiar mountains, lakes, countries and seas from a new perspective. Taking in six continents, the atlas begins with long shots of the areas involved, moving on to focus on specific countries, then parts of countries and finally familiar areas or landmarks in the world's cities. Continent by continent, the perspective is progressively narrowed in a series of wonderfully coloured shots as the camera moves closer to earth. More than an atlas, more than a series of pictures, this book is a unique and beautiful representation of the planet.
