By Angel Lee HALL OF FAME on August 17, 1999
Format: Hardcover
This is a truly unique and fascinating coffee table book. Photographs as well as poems, scriptures, stories, myths, & legends are taken from all over the world & encompass many different cultures.
The pictures are spectacular. They will take you to the misty mountains of China & then let you travel to the lush green forests of Italy. You will also witness the golden sun melting softly into the beautiful Australian coast.
You can then observe zebras grazing the Serengeti Plain or discover the beautiful nature-made sandstone sculptures of Arizona. The brilliant green plains & sparkling blue waters of Madagascar will take your breath away.
Captions for each these images are located in the back & include photographic information, location, & some of the photographer's thoughts on the composition. If you can only buy one coffee table book, this is definitely the one to get.

Format: Hardcover
This book combines striking imagery with myths and essays from around the world. These are put together in interesting and thoughtful ways. The imaging itself seeks out and displays a great number of patterns to be found in the natural world and this emphasis suits the topic of light falling on the land very well indeed.

This combination of secure technique coupled with an artistic awareness is a trademark of Art Wolfe's work and gives considerable aesthetic satisfaction. It seems likely that this book will appeal on those grounds to many people and therefore a 5 star rating would seem appropriate. However, at the time I bought it, the book cost considerably less than that being asked today!

Some dialogue from the comments section that may offer further help:

Your collection of Books, CDs, DVDs & Blu-Rays must number in the tens of thousands - where do you store them? (U.K. review)

No comment - except to say 'with difficulty!'
We had to remove more books than we have kept when moving to Scotland and the music collection was reduced by about 10%. For many years now I have adopted the line that if there are discs that do not get heard in the course of a year then it probably is due for deletion. This keeps the whole thing manageable. A friend of mine keeps everything and there are many discs that are never played in his collection. This is a step too far for me! Ian

I myself have been a serious photographer for over 10 years, collecting books from many different photographers. This book here ranks as the very best book in my library! I cannot praise it enough.

I just got this book. I highly recommend to all. It gives you a unique vision of the beauty of our natural world. I have some interesting Listmania lists on nature photography and landscape painting on my profile if you would like to look more into this subject.
