Overview

Nobody has ever seen Europe like this. Here is the Old World viewed without frontiers, a divided continent visibly back together again. When the Berlin Wall came down during the last weeks of 1989, Over Europe's Photographers took off. For two years fourteen top aerial cameramen examined the familiar countries of the west and explored those in the east, many of which had never been photographed in this way before.

Europe's human story is told in an accompanying text by Jan Morris, whose insightful observations have made her one of the most widely read travel writers of our generation. Here she complements the pictures with an overview of Europe and its people, of their preoccupations, struggles and triumphs, and of the fortunes history has by turns bestowed upon them and taken away.

Together the pictures and the story are a celebration of Europe at the end of its most turbulent century--an unprecedented angel's-eye view of a seamless continent enriched with some of the most exciting architecture and enticing landscapes in the world.

I have bought several copies of this book and gave them out as Christmas presents. Beautiful pictures. I keep mine out on our coffee table. Highly recommend.

This is just one perspective of the wonders of Europe, albeit an unusual one. It lacks the detail of Europe's historic artistry, architecture, florals, and pedestrian zones. I found this volume best suited for an overall view of palaces, castles, architectural wonders, and gardens to see which most pique one's interest.

I would recommend this book only as a companion to other high quality photographic tours which take you right up to, and inside, the picturesque marvels of lands revealing a seemingly limitless array of awe inspiring and jaw dropping human achievements and wondrous natural features.
