Description

Nowhere is the imprint of the pattern of history on the landscape more evident from the air. Ireland's great castles, cities and fields are seldom seen except from ground level; in this book, aerial photography provides the bigger picture - the lie of the land, the topography of a battlefield, the urban vitality of Dublin, the prosperous plains of Kildare and Meath - all are more vivid viewed through Hawkes's 'bird's eye'. Jason Hawkes and Peter Somerville-Large travelto thefarthest reaches of Ireland, where the relationship between the land and its popualtion illustrates the centuries of struggle in Ireland's history. Together, in words and pictures, Ireland from the Air captures both the expected and unexpected elements of a land which is shrouded in mystery and alive with legend.show more
