"...And Beyond" Is The Best Part 12 May 2007
By Puablo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I'm not normally big into art or photography, but a stunning canyon picture at the entrance to Peter Lik's gallery at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas pulled me in and an obsession was born. Lik's "America" book is definitely some of his finest work, and his Maui book is also really good too, so how does Las Vegas stack up? As expected, there's only so much you can do with the strip - there's many variations on the Bellagio fountains, and images of some of the grandest resorts from angles few can ever see, but mostly the photos are just high quality representations of Las Vegas. Good stuff, but not the landscape imagery the artist excels at. The best of the strip are some of the panoramic shots at sunrise or sunset with the mountains in the background.

It's the rest of the book that truly stands out, as the national parks near Las Vegas are fully represented. There are dozens of gorgeous shots of Zion, Valley Of Fire, Bryce Canyon, Death Valley, Red Rock Canyon, and in a spectacular finale - the Grand Canyon.

For someone who is in love with Las Vegas and the beauty of the surrounding area, this book is amazing. For pure love of photography, others might only be interested in the desert landscapes offered here.

Spectacular 7 July 2007
By VegasMirage - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is now the best photography book I own. My two favorite photo books are nature and Las Vegas images, this book combines both. It is about half Las Vegas pictures and half nature pictures from nevada and surrounding states. All the photos in the book are stunning, and it has some of the best Vegas photos I have seen. Aside from the photos themselves, the design/layout of the book and paper used are also top quality. A must have for Vegas/photography lovers.

Beautiful book and wedding accessory... 9 Sept. 2008
By Gina Galland - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
After a recommendation from another bride, I picked up this book as an alternative to a guest book for my wedding in Las Vegas next month. The photography is absolutely amazing and really portrays the city and surrounding desert at its best. I'm looking forward to seeing my guests' faces as they look through this book as much as I am to reading what they write!
Best Guest Book Ever! 27 Jan. 2011
By T. B. St Pierre - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I'm a huge fan of Peter Lik. I wish I could afford or have the room to put some of his work in my home. At any rate, my husband and I got married in Vegas 11/30/2008. We used this book as our guest book, having them choose a page they liked and leaving us a little message. It worked out really well and it is now proudly displayed in our living room. For those not really into the whole Vegas strip scenery, there is a lot more to offer with this book with pictures of Red Rock and other surrounding places. It's stunning!
Great Coffee Table Book 26 Aug. 2009
By S. Williams - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is full of fantastic glossy photos of Vegas and the surroudning desert. I bought it as a gift for a friend who recently travelled to Vegas with a dozen friends to celebrate his 50th birthday. What a great book for him to remember his wild 50th birthday party!!! He loves it! There were some scratches on the face of the book, but not too noticeable - and I think that was because of the type of paper used for the cover.
