and#160;
Spanning from the arctic to the tropics, from large-scale views of Australiaand#8217;s barrier reef to close-up images of sea turtles, Man and Sea is a compelling, entirely unique journey through a fascinating world. Spectacular aerial images by Yann Arthus-Bertrand and striking underwater photographs by Brian Skerry offer a top-to-bottom tour of the worldand#8217;s oceans, while the enlightening text covers the seaand#8217;s critical mechanisms, from currents to food chains. Inspiring interviews of some of the worldand#8217;s most respected researchers and activists also offer cutting-edge insight into the many challenges, such as overfishing and pollution, facing the oceans today. Exploring the critical and ever-evolving relationship between mankind and the ocean, Man and Sea is an unforgettable portrait of the global issue of sustainable development.

Praise for Man and Sea:

and#147;Mr. Skerryand#8217;s Technicolor image of hard corals on the Kingman Reef far out in the Pacific and Mr. Bertrandand#8217;s shot of the pale sand of Whitsunday Island near the Great Barrier Reef are cool and timeless portraits of treasures we might easily think limitless.and#8221; and#151;The Editors, Wall Street Journal and#160;

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.

Synopsis:

This affordable picture-a-day compilation, based on the hugely successful original edition, is the 2005 edition by renowned aerial photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand. Reaching across continents, from 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 months 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, and global warming. Earth From Above: 365 Days offers us a valuable new perspective on our spectacular but fragile environment.

About the Author

Yann Arthus-Bertrand has been portraying the state of the planet in photographs since 1995. Widely known as a specialist in aerial photography around the world, Arthus-Bertrand has published 60 books, including Abrams' best-seller Earth From Above.

Isaac, October 20, 2006 (view all comments by Isaac)
The updated / revised version of ?Earth from Above? was not nearly as impressive as the original ?Earth from Above.? When compared side-by-side to the original (w/ Yellowstone pic on the cover), the revised edition images (some not all) were zoomed in closer, blurry, more contrast, less depth of field? etc. Many of the images were the same or similar, taken at the same location, but not as impressive. The images in the revised edition must have been the left-over images from the original. I returned the revised edition to buy the original for my friend's B-day...
