EARTH FROM ABOVE
Yann Arthus-Bertrand has been recording the state of the planet through aerial photographs since 1990. His photographs document the breathtaking beauty and power of the planet's surface, serving as a record of state of the world's environment and offering a reflection on our future.  These books showcase many of the photographs recorded during his odyssey.
 

Earth from Above, 10th Anniversary Edition, Yann Arthus-Bertrand (Photographer), David Baker (Translator), Lester Russell Brown

Since its original publication in 1999, Yann Arthus-Bertrand’s Earth From Above has been a touchstone for the environmental movement throughout the world, selling more than 3 million copies in all languages. The result of a five-year journey across five continents and 60 countries, this spectacular portrait of our planet is also an iconic reminder of its fragility. 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, Arthus-Bertrand presents nearly 200 striking color images that put our home planet in a whole new perspective.

In this anniversary edition, Arthus-Bertrand and a dozen experts on current environmental issues look back upon the past decade’s progress. With more than 100 striking new images and nine new essays, including frank discussions of climate change and the growing energy crisis throughout the world, Arthus-Bertrand poignantly juxtaposes Earth’s raw beauty with the evidence of humanity’s negative impact upon our home.

Earth from Above: 365 Days, Yann Arthus-Bertrand, Herve Le Bras, Astrid Avundo, Mar Carruthers

This hefty two-inch-thick picture-a-day book is based on the original Earth from Above and shows aerial photographs of the earth. Each day of the year focuses on a different spot on Earth.  The subjects range from a livestock enclosure in Kenya to a shanty town in Belem in Brazil; from a detail of a roof of Himeji Castle to the west of Ogakey Japan to the crosses at an American cemetery north of Verdon, France. The left-hand pages of the book feature a description and inset map of the spot, the right-hand pages feature an aerial photograph.
