Russian and American journalists Mikhail Mordasov and Paul E. Richardson traveled 6,000 kilometers from Russia's northwestern corner in the Arctic to Sochi, in the tropical climes of the Black Sea.
This bilingual coffee table book is the gorgeous photographic journal of that epic road trip. It includes over 200 compelling images of Russians and Russian places met along the way, plus a dozen texts (in both English and Russian) on everything from business to education, from roads to fools.
A museum quality hardcover photo book, The Spine of Russia is a vivid portrait of modern Russian life, and includes over 40 environmental portraits of "heroes" interviewed in depth by the journalists, each of whom was asked the timely question: "Do you consider yourself a patriot, and if so, of what and why?" (Their fascinating answers were all over the map...)
Organized in a unique, non-linear style, The Spine of Russia allows readers to construct their own trip across Russia. This is truly a volume you will treasure for years to come.
The perfect gift for a Russophile!
