Overview

From the author of the multimillion-copy international bestseller Earth From Above comes a moving and brilliantly photographed new book. Home, scheduled to release in conjunction with a film of the same name, is a stunning visual odyssey. A globe-spanning exploration of the planet, complete with Arthus-Bertrand’s unforgettable images and an informative text by the team at Good Planet, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting sustainable development, Home is a celebration of Earth’s beauty and an impassioned call to protect it from destruction. Compelling and defiantly optimistic, Home voyages through over 50 countries, considering the environment’s current condition and factors which will play a role in determining its future. As Arthus-Bertrand says, “It isn’t the 50 percent of forest that has disappeared that’s important, but the 50 percent that’s left.”
