Complete Earth EXTRA LARGE FORMAT
EXCLUSIVE BOOK FAIR OFFER PRICE AT ONLY $999.00MN
Living up to its title, this glorious tome reveals the whole planet, pole to pole, cloud-free, at a resolution of 500 miles to every pixel, or 90 miles to every inch. At this scale, we can trace the Amazon from Andean headwaters to Atlantic mouth, explore the trackless sand seas of the Sahara, or follow the corrugated ridges of hills and mountains that mark the frontline of Indias tectonic assault on Eurasia as if we were in low-Earth orbit. These images are supplemented by a wealth of even higher resolution satellite imagery that zooms in on noteworthy featuresfrom volcanoes to cities, river deltas to glaciers. In addition, 12 double-page-spreads chart one year in the life of our planet as they follow the ebb and flow of the seasons across the globe: we watch snow fall in the North as it melts in the South, and desert lands bloom and fade as the rains come and go. Accompanying these images, a brief but informative text explores the history of each landscape, explaining the how and when of its mountain ranges, deserts, and plains.

"I love this book! If you are interested in maps and earth sciences you will love this book too. Its a very big book but it perfectly suits the content if it was any smaller it would not be as impressive."
