Greece from the air
In this sumptuous volume, Greece's ancient marble ancient amphitheaters, temples, and columns stand guard like the gods of Olympus. The Acropolis, Delphi, and the age-old theater of Epidaurus appear in an entirely new light. Yann Arthus-Bertrand, a French photographer known for his aerial views, has captured these classic symbols of another age along with the grandeur of the rocky Mediterranean landscape, lush olive groves, and glorious islands. Journalist Janine Trotereau's evocative captions illuminate Arthus-Bertrand's breathtaking views and provide geographical, historical, and cultural information.
