Journey to the planet’s most magnificent places with this thought-provoking portrait of our world. See it as you’ve never seen it before and renew your relationship with the place we call home.

The images in this book will take you to places far and wide, the kinds of places that you might never visit but that you can perhaps put on that “If ” list we all have tucked away. These places are surprising, remarkable, remote, familiar … dive in and marvel over the undeniable fact; it is a beautiful world.


Poor quality dated images


Misleading description. This book might be suitable in a reference section of a library circa 1980

Some great images but little substance


It is a reasonably hefty book, with many glorious photographs, but no text to give any context to the imagery. In fact it is an obstacle course trying to track down the location information for many of the larger photographs. I was expecting more a of tourist style with information/facts that could be useful planning a visit to these wonderful places. I also felt misled after reading an article that stated Australia featured prominently in the book..which is sadly does not. The cover also marked very easily, so I'm not sure how sturdy it would be as a coffee table book. Definitely great value for money, but sadly not what I thought it was going to be..

Like other reviewers said, this book is huge. I really did not expect it to be so big. That was a big bonus! As for the pictures, I am disappointed as I expected stunning and breathtaking landscape images, but these comprise I would say about 20% to 30% of the total images. The majority of the images are comprised of ok images, boring crop and wild life images. Overall, the book was good for a discounted price, but I certainly would not have paid full price for it.



Too beautiful for words!


This book is big and beautiful, no text as such, just awe inspiring photographs from the world's most breath taking locations. A great book to have on your coffee table for all to see.





The most beautiful photo's of places all over the world. Makes me want to travel . . everywhere! A bigger book than I anticipated which makes the awesome photo's even better.

Regional Vic




An amazingly beautiful book filled with photos that will stun you.



Beautiful Coffee Table Book. Great gift


Lovely book with first class photographs. A book that can be enjoyed by all members of the family. Would recommend as a gift.
