earth from above: 366 days. Published by Thriftbooks. com User, 13 years ago. My husband and I love this book. We look at it every day. The text may be depressing, but it's a wake-up call to the destruction of beautiful areas like the ones depicted. The pictures are absolutely stunning and you will be astounded that there are such places in the world. Aerial images from around the world-some urban, some landmarks, some purely natural, the diversity is welcomed, and the global key helps tremendously in locating oneself along his journey.

Earth from Above: 366 Days by Arthus-Bertrand, Yann. Flights of Discovery: The Earth from Above, Georg Gerster, Very Good Book.

It was simple, certainly, but ultimately more ambitious than any of us could have imagined. The success has changed us; we are increasingly more demanding of the depth of our knowledge of the Earth and her environment.

Slight shelf wear. Pages are clean and binding is tight.
In Prague last summer there was an outdoor exhibit of a few dozen of the images from this book. I think they were about 4-5 feet wide. I wasn't aware of the work of Arthus-Bertrand before. I returned twice more to look at them. The massive book was on sale but for about 100 euros. The price plus the weight deterred me from buying it. So when I saw it on amazon recently for less than half of that price, it was a no-brainer. The production quality of the images is high. The fold out caption pages are very useful. The essays are generally "non-preachy" and quite-informative. My one complaint, which I think is echoed in another review here or elsewhere on the Web, is that two many of the images in the book are marred because they must be printed on two facing pages with the ususal problems this introduces. Admittedly, having all of the images as fold outs would probably have been too expensive and difficult. Printing them one only one page would not have done the details in the images justice, particular after seeing the big blow ups last summer.
I first saw the work of this super talented photographer in the wee hours of August 20th, 2000 outside Palais du Luxembourg in Paris. I was so fascinated by the colors, the angles, the beauty, and the emotions conveyed that I pledged to get a copy of the book as soon as I returned to the US. The pictures portray everyday places and people that seem out of this world when viewed through the lens of Arthus-Bertrand. The photographer and his staff really did their homework when putting together the captions that accompany the pictures. They have gathered information on geography, history, ecology, anthropology, economics, sociology, politics, and popular culture to describe the sites, hence increasing our awareness of our precious and wondrous yet fragile world. Earth from Above will never make it to my bookshelf because it's so fascinating that I keep it out on my living room table to share the wonder!
Such an amazing collection of photographs. It's lovely to open to a new one every day, so as to give each landscape it's due.

The only thing that would improve this magnum opus is a CD with 360 degree views. Of course that's another set of cameras and another project. Hint . . . Hint . . .

I've bough this as a gift for "non readers" many times and they always have it hanging in their living room.
We first saw Yann's work on large display boards while travelling from city to city throughout the world. The exhibits turned everyone's eyes and you wished you could linger on each of them longer. Once we got home we looked for Earth from Above/Earth from the Air, but the size of the small books we found made it hard to appreciate the grand scenes. Until we found this one! The prints are big enough to capture your whole gaze and get lost in. The images get a full page each, with descriptive text on the opposite page. There's a signature on the opening page and the covers are heavy matte fabric. I recommend putting this out for everybody to enjoy, perhaps with white gloves?
Without question the most superb collection of aerial photographs I've ever seen. As a landscape photographer, I own dozens of coffee table books covering all types of landscapes, seascapes and even the heavens. I love to learn from those who have blazed a trail ahead of me - to see what makes their work great, so that I may improve my own work.
I can honestly say though, of all the modern photographers who's work I view regularly, only Arthus-Bertrand, David Doubilet and Galen Rowell stand in greatness. Wolfe, Brandenberg, Zuckerman...they're all very good at what they do. But there's something that sets work like this apart from the rest. Words can't do them justice, so I'll stop trying.
Suffice it to say this work is a masterpiece.

I'm afraid I have to use superlatives. This is truly a magnificent book. I saw it first last year in France, and fell in love with it. I bought an English version for my son, who's a fine photographer of nature, and he was entranced right away. I'm still amazed by the originality of the shots, their colors, the unusual angles, the splendor of each,..
The only drawback is that it's a little tricky to find titles for some photos. But this spendid book does deserve 5 + stars.
Give it a try, and feel at once the love and reverence for this fantastic planet the authors felt and feel.
The author has been able to collate in this book amazing images that will take you many coffees to sit and go through.

This isn't a tiny book.

If you want to exercise then this is a hefty book that is worth its weight.

The images taken from all over the planet aren't just of pretty clean items but the author has been able to show beauty in even the ugliest of images. This will be a book your friends will want to borrow and possibly keep, if you lend it to them. tell them to get their own. You will see why when you review it.
I purchased for the photos. Pictures are fabulous, intriguing. Buy the large book. Pictures don't have nearly the same impact in the smaller version.
