Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Based on Abrams' hugely successful Earth From Above: 365 Days, this new and improved edition includes 60 additional pages and almost 200 brand-new, eye-popping images by renowned aerial photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand. Reaching across the continents, from the icebergs of Antarctica to the cotton fields of India to the olive plantations of Spain, the breathtaking, full-color photographs are accompanied by informative new captions that illuminate what we see and describe the environmental concerns related to each location. In addition, all 12 chapters of the book now open with an insightful introduction by one of several noted authors who address a wide variety of subjects critical to the present and future health of our planet: agriculture, biodiversity, sustainable development, energy, forests, fresh water, seas and oceans, global warming. Earth from Above: 366 Days offers us a valuable new perspective on our spectacular but fragile environment. AUTHOR BIO: Yann Arthus-Bertrand is a specialist in aerial photography whose work has been featured in National Geographic, Life, GEO, and Paris-Match, among other magazines. He has published more than 20 books of aerial photography. The Earth From Above books, along with the related exhibition, are supported by UNESCO. Brian Groombridge is senior program officer at the United Nations Environment Programme-World Conservation Monitoring Centre, Cambridge, England. Peter H. Gleick is president of the Pacific Institute for Studies in Development, Environment, and Security in Oakland, CA. Alan Simcock is an ocean expert and executive secretary of the Commission of the Convention for the Protection of the Marine Environment of the North-East Atlantic, London.

Synopsis:

In anticipation of leap year, this lavish volume features 200 additional selections of Arthus-Bertrand's internationally renowned aerial photography, plus 12 new chapter intros by noted authors on the environmental health of the planet.

Synopsis:

Working with the support of UNESCO, Arthus-Bertrand has wandered the globe to gather this collection of more than 200 photographs. The images are uniformly striking, whether of stalagmite-like fans of algae spreading into the Mediterranean Sea, farmers working their fields in northern India, or destroyed Iraqi tanks littering the deserts of Kuwait.
