When Louis Armstrong sang “and I think to myself, what a wonderful world” in 1967, he seemed to have unknowingly written the theme song to our planet Earth.
Lonely Planets are veterans of the wonderful world Armstrong sang of. They’ve been almost everywhere and uncovered almost every mystery, and yet even their team can be blown away from time to time by both the natural and the human-made beauty of the world. And so they’ve compiled Beautiful World
, a photographic tribute to the ever-changing earth.
The spectacular photography within this huge tome exceptionally captures the palette of colours and textures that make up our world – from the aurora borealis of Sweden to the Devil’s Marbles in Australia’s Northern Territory, and all the sights and wonders in between. Beautiful World
focuses not only on nature as a photographable object, but also as an eternal body that we have learned to live in harmony with, capturing images of man’s spectacular buildings among equally as fantastic scenery.
For the nature-lover, Beautiful World
cannot be passed by.
