Earth From Above Yann Arthus-Bertrand

EarthfromAbove.jpgLooking for a eco-friendly gift for your Valentine that says "I love you and I love the planet, too"? Check out Earth from Above, a book of photographs from Yann Arthus-Bertrand. Gregory McNamee had this to say about the book in his review on Amazon.

Arthus-Bertrand, working with the support of UNESCO, has wandered the globe to gather this collection of more than 200 photographs, presented in a folio format. 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. The accompanying text, captions, and short essays by some of France's leading scientists and social critics lend specific depth to the images, which will cheer few readers--but that will shock, and educate, and, with luck, inspire closer attention to the world around us.

Jeff Wignall, author of The Joy of Digital Photography adds

Earth from Above
is one of those books that just makes you instantly wonder: How in the world did one man do this? The scope and breadth of the territory covered, the absolute beauty of each and every image and the soulfulness of the subjects is almost impossible to describe.

Available at Earth from Above.
