Item description for Marco Polo: A Photographer's Journey by Michael Yamashita...

This volume brings to life Marco Polo's 13th-century legendary expedition from Italy to China and his homeward sea journey via Sumatra and India. During a three-year assignment for National Geographic Michael Yamashita, one of the most famous and brilliant travel photographers, has followed in Marco Polo's footsteps capturing spectacular images throughout two continents, from Venice to the famous Marco Polo Bridge near Beijing. This beautifully illustrated book is a sort of visual journey that, thanks to the evocative texts by the historian Gianni Guadalupi and a selection of maps, recreates the incredible experiences of Marco Polo, who crossed the deserts of Asia and ventured into distant Cathay.

marco polo a photographers journey  Jan 16, 2007
Good photos and details. Purchased as a gift for my wife and she is totally pleased
Marco Polo: A Photographer's Journey  Nov 10, 2006
Very facinating. I've always been interested in Marco Polo, as has the author. He really leads you through the journey and makes you wonder at the courage Marco Polo had for his travels.
