Reviews - What do customers think about Africa Flying High (Flying High)?
An excellent purchase! Jan 16, 2007
Opening the this site package that arrived at my door, I was very pleased to take out and turn the pages of Paolo Novaresio's stunning aerial photographic journey of Africa. The book was smaller in size than I expected, but the photographs didn't disappoint, capturing extraordinary moments (like the flight of flamingoes) that would otherwise remain secrets known only by the residents of Africa. One also wouldn't guess that each photograph has been taken of the same continent due to the vast diversity of the landscape seen in the images, from deserts to mountain ranges.
This is a coffee table book that certainly won't gather dust. The brilliance of colour and contrast caught by the artistic virtuosity of Novaresio is an unending feast for the eyes.
