Buyer beware - the book is small and lessens the impact of the images
on 19 April 2015
This book, an accompaniment to the TV series, is packed with photos and has only very limited explanatory text.
The photos, for the most part, are stunning but they lose impact by being small and often spread over 2 pages. This could have been a superb book that would have graced any bookshelf or coffee table but the small, square format just does not do the pictures justice. The quality of the images just about saves this book being a complete disaster.
I find it annoying that the brilliance of the photographers has been treated in this derogatory manner and feel that BBC Books are pulling a bit of a fast one here and cashing in on the TV series with little regard for the customer.
