About this title


Egypt, the land that saw the rise and fall of the most long-lived and enigmatic of the ancient Mediterranean civilizations, offers itself to the readers gaze from on high, the best vantage point from which to experience its grandeur. Egypt is capable of staging spectacles of pure beauty: the boundless Sahara desert, the fertile Nile Valley, the sandy beaches of the Mediterranean and the coral reefs of the Red Sea, the masterpieces of Egyptian antiquity, and the remarkable ingenuity of modern man. Stunning photographs, including a sequence of images taken from NASA satellites, accompanied by rich text, describe the myriad facets of a marvellous, colorful, and surprising land. These astonishing photographs truly illustrate the ancients name for Egypt, the Red and the Black Land : the red of the burning desert expanses contrasted against the black of the dark silt transported by the Nile. The breathtaking images reproduced in this book trace an unusual aerial itinerary across a country of millennial appeal, rendered all the more seductive by the clarity of the light and the dizzying perspectives captured by a master photographer. This extraordinary bird s-eye overview embraces the complexity, the geometry, and the sharp colors of the land of the pharaohs.
