Australia: Continents of Contrast Dec 18, 2007
Beautifully done "coffee table" book. Nicely divided into the different areas/states of Australia. It's going to be a gift for my parents who will be traveling to Australia this winter. They'll really appreciate it when they get back as a pictorial memory book. Many, many photos. Gorgeous.
Photography: Spectacular; Text: Poor Dec 10, 2007
Fantastic & breathtaking photographs throughout, but I have the feeling this book was translated into English, possibly from German judging by the author/photographer names, and someone did a very poor job in the English translation process. In addition, there are many misspellings of words and names, which is unfortunate and could have been corrected if someone had done their research. However, if you can overlook the poor text and want to enjoy some beautiful photography of this amazing country and/or collect large, coffee table style books, then this is worth having, but don't pay retail price - take advantage of this site's discount!
