Reviews - What do customers think about Ireland: From the Air?
Is there anything in Ireland that doesn't make for a good photograph? Nov 6, 2007
This is another one of those awesome books of photographs by Antonio Attini called Cube Books. It is 640 pages of top quality photographs,printed on excellent glossy paper,using excellent color reproduction and printing techniques. It's hard to imagine how these excellent photographs could be printed any better. Oh,I suppose these photos would be even better ,if larger,but there is a limit to it all.Besides can you just imagine the size of book you would get with over 500 pictures if they were all five times as large? I have visited Ireland 3 times and it has often occurred to me that ,no matter where you look or what you look at ,a beautiful picture could be taken. There is no limit to the landscape,buildings, water,people and history that is spread before you at every turn. I have often thought what wonderful views there would be, if only one could get up in the air,like in a hot air balloon and float above it all like on a magic carpet. Well,that is just what Attini has attemptd to do. In this book he gives us just a miniscule taste of it all;and what a taste it is. In reality,a taste is all that is possible because the scenes that await one are endless.All one can do is just sit back and thumb through the book and enjoy it all and wish you could see even more. It is just impossible to be satisfied with it all. There is just one small problem with this book,and others like it. The weight of all the pages impose a big challenge on the binding and spline of the book ,and if not handled with care,and shudder the thought the book should be dropped;it will surely be damaged. No book of this nature can begin to cover all of Ireland and you will find only a very few pictures of places you have been,but the few that are included will be from a totally different perspective. It's one thing to sit at the top of the Cliffs of Moher,and even dangle one's feet over the edge;but what a sight it is from the air, as we see on pages 268 and 269! Besides;if you've never visited Ireland,and wondered about the expression,"Forty Shades of Green",this book will show you that never mind forty, there are literally thousands. And did you know that it was the great Johnny Cash who wrote that song when he was inspired by it all,from the window of the plane as he was leaving Ireland, after his visit.
