This really sums up this amazing country which I had the pleasure of visiting earlier this year. It just captures the spirit and energy of this country which has a " it can be done attitude". Really wonderful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Labour of love 23 April 2008
By Andrius Uzkalnis - Published on Amazon.com
Lithuania is not a country of outstanding natural beauty (except maybe for the Curonian Spit - truly haunting and rare natural phenomenon) - I can say this because I am from there. Lithuania is average. There is some nice architecture, and the ratio of nature vs. urban habitat is also favourable.

What this book has done was work with what was available, and get 120% out of it.

The tourist and landscape photography market was for too long dominated by depressing early XX century school photography, pining for villages that are there no more and celebrating sentimental sunsets and girls with blonde plaits, as well as predictable shots of Gothic and Baroque architecture.

This book is refreshing, bold and unashamedly Western in its approach, where every photo is as bold and as perfect as a million-dollar poster for a major perfume brand launch (Amazon.com previews of pages honestly do not do it justice).

The price and the bulk make it a book which is not for everyone, but I can just see it becoming one of the most prized library posessions for anyone who is interested in Lithuania. In my library, it will take the place of honor next to The Times Atlas of the World.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful book 9 Sep 2012

I am married to a first generation American woman of Lithuanian heritage. I bought this book about a year ago because my wife had seen it when she attended a meeting at the Lithuanian American Community of Minnesota (LACMN). It is a bit expensive, but my wife loves it and has it on display on our coffee table. When we have company at our home it is a book that everyone looks at and all seem fascinated by how beautiful the country looks. Although I am not Lithuanian, I would recommend the book for anyone who has a drop of Lithuanian blood in them, as they all seem so excited when they view this book. The photography in this book is excellent.
