The result of a five-year airborne odyssey across five continents and 60 countries, "Earth from Above" is the most revealing and spectacular portrait of our world ever created. From a heart-shaped mangrove forest in New Caledonia to a flock of red ibises in Venezuela, from a caravan of camels in Mauritania to Mt. Everest and Mammoth Hot Springs, renowned aerial photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand presents striking color images that put our home planet in a whole new perspective. Produced under the sponsorship of UNESCO, the book is also a documentary record of the state of the world's fragile environment.
This vibrant new edition of the internationally acclaimed original features an updated design and nearly 60 stunning new photographs. All new captions and the addition of authoritative new texts by experts in various environmental fields illuminate Arthus-Bertand's monumental achievement.
Yann Arthus-Bertrand has been portraying the state of the planet in photographs since 1995. Widely known as a specialist in aerial photography around the world, Arthus-Bertrand has published 60 books.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! Now THIS is a coffee table book. We saw an exhibit of these photos in huge 6' size in Paris in 2000 and bought the book that Christmas. The photography is amazing, and the detailed descriptions and insight into our world are extraordinary.
