The book is very nice and beautifully illustrated. It is an excellent aerial presentation of the city. The photos are CLOSE ENOUGH to see great detail easily and FAR ENOUGH AWAY to enjoy the overall vista without loss of perspective. It is a happy mix.
"MY" only complaint is that a good part of the book covered some of the spectacularly beautiful countryside surrounding Charleston. The natural beauty is spectacular and beautifully photographed but my requirement would have been for more of the actual historic downtown than was present in the book. Still, there was plenty of downtown photos to serve my purposes.
In spite of this personal drawback, The book is beautiful AND the yellow airplane used for the photography is fascinating unto itself. The photographer managed to cross that magical barrier where a "photograph" becomes a "work of art" and there is something wonderful in this.
So, if you are looking for a beautifully illustrated picture book of the Charleston region, I think you will enjoy this book very much.
