I took off one point because I feel there should have been info on the type of camera used, the lens & if photoshop was used. For those of us beginners in photography, it would help to learn as we are oooing and aaahing over the photos.
I still would recommend this book highly for the quality of paper and the sharpness of color. It's one of the best book that National Geographic has and IS NOT PRINTED IN CHINA.
the Italian printers have done a nice job.
Buy it for the lovely photography.
There are interesting descriptions of colour before each section and quotes within. Blue is calm and is sacred in every religion. The photos are large and many are not the run of the mill, but instead are extreme close ups and out of the ordinary views of people, places and creatures. The colours are all stunning.
Many times the labeling for the photos are several pages away. Granted it allows for 2 page spreads of the photos, but it still causes you to turn back and forth, especially because the identifications are sometimes for previous and sometimes for following pages. The photographs are identified by photographer and place with a sentence describing it.
The colours used are; blue, silver, orange, unseen- optics, green, brown, yellow, purple, gold, red and white.
This is a book photographers and those with an artistic sense would appreciate.
