This is a book of images and a big book at that. A great book to have handy and flick thorough when you get the chance or have 5 minutes spare with a coffee. Its not a book to take on your travels, because its big. It is in effect a collection of images from some of the best photographers of the day. There are a couple of books in this series and all are worth looking at
