By James D. Crabtree VINE VOICE on July 21, 2006
Format: Paperback
I loved this book. The photographers focused on the ordinary, rather than the idealized, and let's face it: when we travel we're going to be dealing with the ordinary.

I have not been to Afghanistan but a friend of mind has and when I showed him this book he liked it. This book gets the "look" of the place, warts and all. Of course, it is not a per se guidebook but more of a supplement to more tradional guides. I look forward to future books in this series.

This is a great little book, perfect for a coffee table. An in-depth travel guide it is not, but nor is it intended to be. The photos are wonderful, and the design and concept are really imaginative. If you're looking for eye-catching graphic design, along with inspired visual perspectives of people, places, and things in Afghanistan, this is the book for you.

I look forward to more books from this upcoming series!

Format: Paperback
This brilliantly imaginative little book captures the color, chaos and above all the life of modern Afghanistan than any other book I've seen -- especially those heavy, expensive tomes full of grainy and depressing black and white photos of war, suffering and destruction. This deserves to be widely seen and appreciated by anyone interested in travel, photography, design, and current events. I'd love to see further volumes in this series, particularly on the Middle East and Asia. Buy this and encourage the publishers to do more!
