Put simply, this is the most impressive collection of African wildlife photography we have come across. The book itself is enormous, but unlike many other giant photography tomes, the quality of the reproduction has not been compromised. The images are so razor-sharp that you can see the freckles on a lion s nose, count the eyelashes on a ground hornbill, or trace the fingerprint from a chimpanzee s hand, while the landscape shots deposit you right among the dunes and baobabs. An extraordinary book. --Wanderlust magazine, UK Oct 2006
Awesome Africa: if ever a book could take your breath away, this is the one. ...Africa is a hardback coffee table volume that superbly captures the diversity and magnificence of the continent. --Daily Express, UK 26 Aug 2006
This excellent book has to be picked up to be believed... Buy it, because it s packed with tremendous images and they are all used across the double page spread, so they are impressively big... Technically, many of the shots are breath-taking and very inspirational. Well worth buying even with its hefty 70 price tag. --Photography Monthly, UK, Sept 2006
