Through the Len is a conucopia of National geographic's best photographs created since 1890 when the Society first started commissioning photographers to go out into the world and bring images back to its readership. Many of the 250 photographs have been previously published in the magazine but a great number of them are images that did not make the final edit but have great merit on their own. Readers can take a virtual tour around he world to see rice sellers in the Mekong Delta, teenagers in Brazil, duck hunters in Nebraska, and stingrays in the Cayman Islands, to name a few examples. You also move seamlessly back and forth in time, from the days when travellers climbed mountain trails by mule to colour-filled lofty airplane rides above the Galapagos Islands with a greater appreciation for technological advancements and the chance to suspend time either way.

  • Great images let done by quality

    by on

    The book contains some great images and well known ones too. However they are let done by the quality of the publication. The images have been cropped to fit the size format and also the print quality is quite grainy in some images (I'm fairly certain this is not due to high iso).

    However for $15 you can't expect a top quality book.
