Out of Stone is a book that truly needed to be published. The world has heard much about the tragic history of this ancient nation. But Out of Stone portrays the timeless beauty of Armenia in a way that hasn't been done before. Out of Stone actually celebrates Armenia. And this book does so in a way that almost compels one to visit this distant land. It accomplishes this through page after page of vivid color images of landscapes, cultural monuments and portraits. The landscapes depict the majesty of this country. The cultural monuments demonstrate its antiquity. And the portraits suggest that the photographers truly loved their subjects. Out of Stone is the first, and currently still the only published collection of photographs that looks to the future with such hope and optimism.About the Author:
