Description
Known for such beautiful, utterly fascinating albums of aerial photography as Paradise Lost: Persia from Above and Swissair Posters, Georg Gerster here gives us the ancient world in 250 bird's-eye-view portraits of sites from the temple complex at Karnak to the Great Wall of China, from the Acropolis in Athens to Aztec palaces in Mexico. Each of the images—up to 18 x 11 1/2 inches—is presented with minimal text, while each section includes its own thumbnail index with lengthy archaeological notes.

"Seen from high above ... places we've seen a thousand times in pictures from ground level take on a whole new meaning."—Smithsonian Magazine

"If Kubla Khan had a library in Xanadu, he'd have kept this book on permanent display."—Guardian (London)
