I have quite some books about African wildlife. My books also include Michael Poliza's "Africa" and "Eyes over Africa". The latter having not the quality as his first I did some research before purchasing his latest issue. I'm glad I did. You can view all the images of "Classic Africa" at the photographer's website. I'm a huge fan of black and white photography, but these images don't speak to me. Don't get me wrong. The composition and so are very good, but the black and white issues look overdone. I believe the photographer wanted to create a nostalgic look. However, a lot of these have been published as color images before and in that way are excellent without a doubt. If you really want a book by Poliza than I strongly suggest his first "Africa". And for black and white photography of African wildlife there's only one option for me: Nick Brandt. His two books "On this Earth" and especially "A Shadow Falls" are a league of their own. And for a much lower price. You can find them here On This Earth: Photographs from East Africa,A Shadow Falls

I bought this book for my husband as a memento for the love of Africa that we have. This book is worth the money. Beautiful suede like cover in dark brown and the narration at the beginning of the book is like poetry to the ears. The photographs are absolutely spectacular. This is a wonderful coffee table book and outshines anything else we have.

Highly recommended.
