Description
In this breathtaking aerial journey down the Nile River, French photographer Philip Plisson flies with Egyptologist Christian Jacq to create a visual celebration of a spectacular landscape. In 250 images, up to 22 x 12 inches, Plisson captures such stunning icons as the pyramids of Giza, the ancient temples of Luxor, and the timeless Nile itself in dramatic light and deep shadows. Jacq's text provides a history of these subjects as they were and as they are today, inviting readers to rediscover Egypt.

"Philip Plisson's aerial photographs ... feel like clues to Egypt's mysteries—elegant patterns and strange geometry from a viewpoint that most travelers will never see."—Virtuoso Life
