Product description

This season, National Geographic's must-have photography gift book is more than a visual delight; it is a celebration of all that is uplifting, magnificent, and fascinating in our world, at a time when we most need to remember. "Visions of Earth" is a breathtaking gallery of all that is right with our world, as seen through a photographer's eye. Stunning landscapes, fascinating people, amazing animals, unexpected glimpses of the usual and unusual are a soothing antidote to the news of natural disasters, conflict, political upheaval, and social unrest that fills our lives. "Visions of Earth" showcases the many ways that our world is a marvel to behold and a privilege to call home. Begun as a regular monthly photo gallery in the National Geographic Magazine, "Visions of Earth" is now rated the Number 1 feature among readers. Its only mandate - to present what is visually incredible. Now, these images and more, some from our own image collection, others captured by renowned photographers throughout the world, and many never-before published, are gathered together into one magnificent volume that will delight and inspire.
