Beautiful, yet informative book,
This review is from: Britain: The Mini-book of Aerial Views - A Journey Through Time (Hardcover)
I bought this book for a colleague of mine who was returning to the Far East after a period in Britain. Not only is the photograhy stunning the book is informative detailing the history of Britain from the creation of the land masses through to 2007. It oulines the growth of the "British" people through their dwellings and the change from agricultural feudal system through to squires and then into industrialisation and the modern age all with appropriate photos. What's most pleasing is whilst the usual standards are on show the book wasn't cliched in its selection of photographs and I was constantly refering to the maps at the back to find out where the selected points of interest were located. It's also not the usual huge A3 coffee book size so you can sit and flick through the 400+ pages without breaking your wrist.
