Natural Wonders of the World

DK Publishing and Smithsonian team up to deliver another gorgeous coffee table book of photography and accompanying text devoted to the incredible diversity and beauty of planet Earth.  The photography is nothing short of stunning and the text is interesting and in-depth. Most of the accompanying information is presented as sidebars with the photos inset into the sidebars.

The book is divided into thematic geographical sections: Introduction, North America, Central and South America, Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia and New Zealand, Antarctica, the Oceans, and Extreme Weather.  This is a substantial glossy book, 440 pages in hardbound format.

The pictures are breathtaking.  DK has never failed in my experience to present gorgeous and timely books.  This one is precisely that, a worthy addition to that legacy.

Five stars, a really beautiful book.

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher.
