    Full Description

    Discover the whole fascinating world of deserts in an opulent illustrated book! Immerse yourself in breathtaking landscapes and untouched nature on all five continents. From the icy expanses of the Arctic and Antarctic to the barren wastelands of Greenland and Iceland, the endless steppes of Central Asia and America and the endless deserts of Arabia and Africa.

    Highlights such as the majestic Gobi Desert, the mystical Sahara, the Namib Desert, the picturesque Kalahari or the Colorado Desert are of course not missing. The pictures take you into a world of endless dune landscapes, barren and bizarre stone deserts or salt lakes as if from another planet. But there are also oases to discover that seem like a mirage and abandoned settlements that bear witness to the futile human efforts to gain a foothold here. This illustrated book is more than just a collection of photographs – it is a captivating portrait of our planet and poetically tells of the wonder of life – and its fragility.

    Text in English, German, and French.
