Item description for Mountains (Supercubes) by Valeria Manferto De Fabianis...
Since the late nineteenth century, mountaineering has fed our desire for conquest, challenge, and knowledge, attracting us to the highest peaks. Packed with hundreds of glorious photographs by the world's foremost nature photographers, Mountains SuperCube invites us into a world of intense beauty and timelessness. Taken from a variety of innovative angles, these images present the most scenic and most compelling aspects of such legendary peaks as Mt. Everest, the Matterhorn, K2, Mont Blanc, Cerro Torre, and Mount McKinley. Accompanied by vivid accounts of daring mountaineers and affectionate anecdotes from people who live near the mountains, these photographs evoke the breathtaking beauty of the world's most majestic mountains and convey their constant allure. The substantial SuperCube format provides an appropriately grand vehicle in which to pay tribute to these natural wonders.
Valeria Manferto De Fabianis has published many photography books including Cats, Dogs, and Children in the CubeBook series. She co-founded White Star Publishers in 1984 with Marcello Bertinetti and is currently the publishing company's editor-in-chief.
