Item description for The Essential Africa by Michael Poliza...
Our beautifully produced, large format edition of Michael Poliza's Africa was hailed by many as one of the best books on this subject ever published. Africa is now a bestseller with worldwide distribution. Since a gigantic coffee table book weighing over 5 kilos (13 pounds) may not be everyone's idea of the perfect travel companion, we have decided to bow to popular demand and publish The Essential Africa. This is a more concise, portable edition of the large format book which will include the very best of Africa and half of its photographs. We believe we've succeeded in making the breathtakingly beautiful photography of the large format edition accessible to the largest possible audience.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Essential Africa?
A popular pick for any general-interest collection where patrons enjoy wildlife pictures. Jul 27, 2007
Michael Poliza's AFRICA was hailed as one of the best photography books on the continent when it was published in its oversized volume: THE ESSENTIAL AFRICA is a more concise, portable edition of the large coffee table original and is even more highly recommended to libraries seeking photographic representation of the continent's wildlife. The close-up animal photos lose nothing in reduction to the more standard book size and even are enhanced, fairly leaping off the page with lots of color and striking close-up effects. THE ESSENTIAL AFRICA is even more highly recommended for library holdings: easier to file, easier to hold and display, and certain to be a popular pick for any general-interest collection where patrons enjoy wildlife pictures.
