Item description for The Sky: Cube Books (Cube Books) by Luca Mercalli...

The sky is a never-ending source of inspiration for artists, poets, and anyone who has found peace in contemplating clouds or a colorful sunset. Whether viewed from below or from above—with the help of satellite images—the pictures in this new addition to White Star's popular CubeBooks series convey the many faces of the sky. Colorful images capture the violent force of tempestuous storms as well as the glorious sunrises, sunsets, and northern lights that are reflections of nature's gentler side. Readers view the sky in horizons that frame both the most beautiful natural parks and landscapes in the world and the skylines of the world's most sophisticated cities. Spectacular views of flocks of migratory birds pose a fascinating contrast to images of people "flying" in extreme sports such as paragliding, sky-diving or through the impressive maneuvers of acrobatic air squads. Throughout the book, insightful captions provide fascinating facts about meteorological phenomena and other heavenly tidbits. With its stunning full-page spreads, the Cubebook format is ideal for showcasing sweeping cloud formations, dramatic weather patterns, and vast expanses of deep, pure blue sky. Accessible and delightfully tactile, The Sky Cubebook will appeal to readers of all ages.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Sky: Cube Books (Cube Books)?

A bounty of amazing sky photography in a small package  Jul 30, 2008
As an avid sky-watcher and past professional severe storm photographer, I've been exposed to more than a few sky images. I can absolutely say that this is one of the most visually impressive groups of sky photographs I have encountered. The publisher's choice to lump-in samplings of images of hot-air ballooning and (stranger still) military aircraft involved in formation flying is, to say the least, interesting. However the group of selected photographers (many of them European) whose work was selected for inclusion in his "cube book" are both talented and sufficiently far off the beaten path that fans of weather photography will be pleasantly surprised with the highly artful and incisive variety of sky images. This book would make a nice and unusual addition to any coffee table or office.
 
Looking up   Nov 13, 2006
This book is a real pleasure. Its photos of the sky at various times, places, angles show us how beautiful our life can be if we only look up. The book aside from the photos which are its heart explains what the 'sky' is and how it relates to our ordinary life perceptions and the insights into the universe given to us by our scientific instruments. When looking at this book I had in mind the traditional Jewish teaching , that a person should always 'look up' when they walk. That is the Sky is not only the Sky not only the colors and shapes of what we see but rather is suggestive of what is Beyond us, of a realm which helps us dream and hope.
This is a truly enjoyable little album, and one I think many guests would delight in taking from the coffee- table and leafing through.
