9788854403079: China from Above (World of Emotions)

This superb photographic tableau showcases the kaleidoscope of colors and textures of China–as seen from above–with all the artistic insight and technical innovation worthy of this ancient and ever-fascinating country. Hundreds of specially commissioned photographs explore every nook and cranny of this vast country bringing readers a wealth of perspectives on the country’s immense and diverse range of sights. Depicting the varied topographies of China’s landscape as well as millennia-old monuments and modern architecture, the many facets of China come alive in this handsome volume. Densely populated cities contrast with the forests and brilliant lakes of Sichuan, the Himalayan peaks, and the deserts and Blue Mountains of Xinjiang. From Zhenghou and its archaeological riches to the majesty of the Great Wall of China, these images present unexpected views of familiar landmarks as well as reveal obscure sights that readers would never experience without the benefit of these dramatic pictures. This collection of photographs presents China, with its unique terrain, monuments, and people, as a veritable masterpiece.
