    About this book

CHINA presents a stunning collection of previously unpublished photos by
native photographers revealing the unique combination of China's natural
landscape and multicultural civilisation. The images selected for this
one-of-a-kind presentation include portraits of forty-two of the most
representative natural and cultural attractions in China, including
twenty-eight notable World Heritage sites.

Created by dozens of the country's top photographers, the 238 artful
pictures present a provocative journey to the most spectacular natural
landscapes of China, revealing the ancient origins of Chinese culture
and tradition. Open any of the twelve gatefolds to expose another aspect
of the splendour and complex origins of this wonderful civilisation.
Many of these unique photographs provide close-up perspectives on the
finer detail of colour and contour. A ten-page index emphasises the
traditional and geographic significance of the sites, adding cultural
and historical depth to the presentation.

The monuments covered here are the pride of the Chinese people as well as wonders appreciated
by naturalists and anthropologists throughout the world. CHINA is a great gift for everyone with
an interest in the natural and cultural magnificence of this 5,000 year old civilisation. The artfulness
of the photos and the high quality of the reproductions make CHINA a treasured addition to any
quality collection.
