Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Indisputably 'Wild Africa' contains some brilliant photographs of the continent's impressive megafauna and breathtaking landscapes. The author's passion, dedication and talent are obvious. And clearly little expense has been spared in producing a lavish hard-back volume with thick, luxuriant paper.

Unfortunately there is a 'however'... in that it could and should have been an even more stunning book than it is. As the previous reviewer has mentioned, several of the photographs are compromised (or even ruined) by the fact that the subject is situated in the centre-fold between the double-page spread. Thus some beautiful images of lions and elephants looking straight at the camera, lose much of their impact. The book should have been produced in large landscape format, which would have avoided this problem.

My second criticism is with the rather florid text. This is often a problem with wildlife photography books - the photographer isn't necessarily a great writer. However, in this instance the text was written not by Alex Bernasconi, but by Hugh Cumming.

That said, there are enough awe-inspiring images contained in 'Wild Africa' to make it well worth buying. The leopard on page 226, whose eyes are fixed on the photographer while crouching on the branch of a massive tree, in a forest setting that could be imagined as if from a fairytale, is one of the most jaw-dropping wildlife photographs I've ever seen.

Format: Hardcover
This is an excellent photography book on Africa, especially the wildlife. The paper quality is outstanding, thick n glossy and easily a match for Taschen or Teneues. Its mostly double page spreads, about 10 of which are compromised by the spine location in the middle. The rest are excellent. Overall very good for less than £30.
