Book DescriptionAcclaimed photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand brings us this book of magnificent aerial photographs of the multifaceted landscapes of Turkey. Eighty-nine lush color images take the reader across some of the most beautiful terrain in the world. From the haunting remains of Hellenistic Greece and the ruins of Byzantium to the glories of the Ottoman Empire, Turkey from the Air provides a virtual magic carpet ride through this enchanting country, including ancient sites that can be viewed only from above. We see the great city of Istanbul, once the glittering capital of the Byzantine Empire, bristling with the minarets of countless mosques. Here, too, are the ancient cities of Bodrum and Ephesus, the great theater at Aspendus, and the archaeological site Priene. The introduction provides an overview of the country's history, from the time of the Hittites, thousands of years ago, to Turkey today. For anyone who has ever been to Turkey or wishes to experience it...
