Product Description

Review

Praise for LONDON: THE PHOTOGRAPHIC ATLAS:

'Drop heavy hints to Santa about London: The Photographic Atlas … a sublime book … an amazing labour of love' The Guardian

'Warning – don't buy this book! You will spend hours and hours, if not days and weeks, poring over its amazing detail. For lovers of London it is a must' Ken Livingstone, Mayor of London

'A fascinating book … it contains all the passion of a great city … fun for all the family' Rowan Moore, Evening Standard

'Absolutely brilliant' Chris Tarrant, Capital Radio

From the Back Cover

A landmark publication.

‘ENGLAND: The Photographic Atlas’ combines the vertical aerial photography of Getmapping, creators of the Millenium Map, with Collins’ acclaimed road mapping, in a single volume that covers the entire country in unprecedented detail.

From the open plains of East Anglia, the wild fells of the Pennines and the rocky coastline of the West Country to the cityscapes of London, Birmingham and Manchester, England is truly a land of geographical extremes. Evidence of human interaction with the terrain is visible everywhere, from fields scarred by iron-age settlements to the canals and railways of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and the sprawling suburbs of the twentieth. Now, in the twenty-first century, the country is changing faster than ever before, as towns eat further into green fields and new motorways fuel our insatiable demand for greater mobility. Close inspection of ‘ENGLAND: The Photographic Atlas’ will reward you with some fascinating new perspectives on the landscape.

This book is from the same series as ‘LONDON: The Photographic Atlas’ and ‘EDINBURGH: The Photographic Atlas’. These titles draw on the Millennium Map, a contemporary Domesday Book that promises to be a social record of the utmost historical importance to future generations.

I found this book remarkable. It is well produced and adds a new dimension to the world of atlases. I find myself looking at places I have visited and can spend ages studying the detail and seeing what I might have missed. It is one of those books that you really do want to come back to time after time. Every home should invest in a copy.

I think you should know that this book tips the scales at sixteen pounds, is almost two inches thick and shows every field in England.

I thought the sequence of mapping pages was rather well thought out, just plain anywhere is to a 1:72,000 scale, slightly built up areas are 1:36,000 (and I can just about make out where my house is) large cities are 1:18,000 and city centres get a wonderful 1:4,500 scale so it is easy to see parked cars.

Despite the massive size and weight it is very user friendly, each aerial photomap spread has a descriptive caption and a reference to the relevant section of a cartographic map in the back of the book (1:288,000 scale) and nicely this map has marks indicating each aerial spread, with a page number, too. There is also a twenty-five page index.

This is definitely a book to get sidetracked by, find a place and pretty soon you'll spot something else and turn the page to follow a motorway or a river and then get distracted by a colorful shape and want to find out more. I was surprised at the number of airports and airstrips everywhere, even at 1:72,000 they are easily spotted.

Part of its beauty is the printing, by a German company called Aprinta. With 175 dpi, the color on every page is perfectly registered and the excellent binding completes this amazing book. If you have an interest in England and like maps you will not be disappointed by this unique overhead view of the nation.

This book provides for the ordinary mortal what you can only otherwise get from flying. There is sufficient detail for most to be able to find their house or to explore areas they would like to visit. Combined with a good map there is nothing left that you need to know about the physical geography of any area of the country. A wonderful teaching aid for the young and an essential for the casually interested or enthusiast.

This is a beautifully produced and photographed tome. Whether or not you have travelled England well, you will be in awe of the magnificence of this country when seen from above. As a city dweller, the countryside appears to be a patchwork quilt of greenness. The map references are clear and simple to use, individual houses are not clearly visible although local landmarks are easy enough to find. My partner has spent hours looking at all the golf courses he has ever played! Be careful when lifting this book as it is very heavy.
