This is a beautiful and fascinating book. There are satellite images of everything from glacial movement, to sandstorms, to city pictures of places like Venice and Washington, D.C. The captions and text that accompany the images provide a wealth of knowledge about what the reader is looking at. I feel like I learned so much about geography, cartography, meteorology, and even commerce from this book.
