Sort of a coffee table book but one that can be read without too much difficulty

I would recommend it as the maps were clear and it was an attractive book but as I bought it for a present I did not look through it too much and as it now resides a couple of hundred miles from me - I do not know if it is being used!

This book is stunning and the pull-out maps in pockets are a real joy. Spent ages studying the final one with the Sea of Gallilee.
