    DescriptionSee the earth as never before in this brand new book featuring amazing photographic views of the world. The "Photographic Atlas of the World" is far more than an atlas or a series of aerial photographs. The latest satellite technology has been used to provide images of unparalleled clarity and colour, providing photographs of familiar mountains, lakes, countries and seas from a new perspective. Taking in six continents, the atlas begins with long shots of the areas involved, moving on to focus on specific countries, then parts of countries and finally familiar areas or landmarks in the world's cities. Continent by continent, the perspective is progressively narrowed in a series of wonderfully coloured shots as the camera moves closer to earth. More than an atlas, more than a series of pictures, this book is a unique and beautiful representation of the planet.

    Author Information
    Sir Ranulph Fiennes OBE has been described by The Guinness Book of Records as "the world's greatest living explorer". During the last 20 years his astonishing feats have claimed 10 expeditionary world records. In 1982 Fiennes and Charles Burton became the first men in history to reach both Poles, cross Antarctica and the Atlantic Ocean and circumnavigate the Earth on its polar axis. In November 2003, Ranulph Fiennes and Mike Stroud completed an incredible seven marathons on seven continents in seven days: a global adventure that began in the wilds of South America and finished in New York's concrete jungle. He has published 12 books including The Feather Men, which was the UK and Commonwealth Number One Bestseller as well as Mind Over Matter and Living Dangerously.
