Book Description

7 Jan 2010
Whether they are scientific enigmas, paranormal phenomena, mischievous hoaxes or inspired land art, the scale, beauty and mathematical and symbolic complexity of crop circles continues to astound. Throughout the summer months every year, in fields of oilseed rape, barley and wheat, a rash of ever more elaborate circles and designs appears.

Lucy Pringle has been photographing and researching crop circles for nearly twenty years. She here presents a catalogue of her awe-inspiring aerial photographs taken across the south of England, guaranteed to amaze believers and sceptics alike.

Product Description

Review

Beautiful examples of this enigmatic art form. (Yoga & Health)

Sit back and focus on just how enthralling and beautiful these patterns are. Incredibly intricate and varied in their complex geometries - whoever their creators - it seems only just to view them as art. (BBC Countryfile)

Recommended reading (Outdoor Photography)

This is 'land art' to rival anything by Richard Long or Andy Goldsworthy. (Countryman)

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW photos 22 July 2008
Format:Hardcover
I love this book - a gorgeous collection of images of crop circles of every kind. All the photographs are large and clear and colourful. There's one per page except where one takes up two pages. Each crop circle has a little keynote giving the date, location, and dimensions - just enough information and no more. There is an interesting introduction to the whole phenomenon at the beginning of the book, but from there on in it's a collection of photographic art. Perfect to dip into and refer back to time and time again. It's got the "Wow" factor!

5.0 out of 5 stars A picture is worth 10,000 words 19 Sep 2009
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Lucy Pringle lets these photos speak for themselves - she simply notes the place, the pattern, and the "medium" - ie whether the artwork was produced on wheat or barley. Virtually no attempt to explain or analyse or compare - just allow them to sink in and let the images work their own magic. She picks 90 of the best aerial photos of works from 1993 to 2006 - with some close-ups as well. Some of the formations were so amazing that I gasped - I had never seen some of these in the press. A beautiful book and a great gift.

If you want more information after this, buy Freddy Silva's book "Secrets in the Fields" - a very calm and methodical academic research into the phenomenon with lots of detail that will help you understand what is going on. And it ain't two guys with a plank and a chain, be very assured of that.

2.0 out of 5 stars Low quality pictures 30 Oct 2012
By beki
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book has a wide variety of full size images which is great, unfortunately they are taken with a low resolution and so appear a bit grainy and blurry. Nowhere near the standard of imagery you normally see in books, it really does ruin it a bit. The book is still ok if you want the images as reference or to draw from, but don't buy this book if you are looking for a good coffee table book that looks beautiful.

5.0 out of 5 stars A visual treat! 30 Oct 2010
Format:Paperback
This is a really great book. It is largely pictorial but contains some high quality aerial and ground shots of the crop circles. You really get a sense of the scale of the formations with this book and some of the images span two pages. In the introduction there are some interesting facts about crop circles and the author puts them into a worldwide context in terms of the other continents that they occur in. There is no particular bias with this book so the reader is free to look at the images of the circles and reach their own conclusions - or not as the case may be :)
