Author: Alastair Bonnett
Stars: 5 stars out of 5
This is a beautiful book full of amazing views of the world and stat I have never thought of before. I found myself spending an hour looking and reading the book. My 11 year old son and 8 year old daughter loved this book and want to take it to bed every night. They love reading about the world around them and better understanding their place and footprint on the earth.
It will be a beautiful addition to any coffee table book and in fact will out shine almost every single one.
This book has wonderful facts, pictures, charts and graphics that will have everyone finding out the different ways they impact the earth as well as a great starting point to research.
Thank you to the Author as well as the publishing company for sending me an advance copy.
ew Views is a unique and beautiful collection of fifty maps in which our physical, political and cultural world is visualised, measured and mapped like never before.
Alastair Bonnett’s expert text provides vivid insight on each topic. From charting energy networks to revealing new and emerging lands, measuring human migration to assessing the planet’s ant populations – and including the phenomena we have little control over such as lightning strikes or asteroid impact – each map asks you to question, wonder and look again at our rapidly changing and often surprising world.
Divided into three thematic sections: Land, Air and Sea; Human and Animal, and Globalisation, New Views offers a fresh and truly global portrait of our intricately fascinating planet.
Hardcover, 224 pages
