The Alps

A Bird's Eye View


The Alps: A Bird's-Eye View is a major project with completely new aerial photographs of the entire Alpine chain and up to date texts from experts in the world of geology; climate change; geography; Alpine tourism; natural environment; and more.

This is physically a big hardback book - 512 pages 28cm wide 37.5cm tall and weighing 4.95 kilos. The book has been compiled under the patronage of UNESCO (United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organisation) and includes a foreword by the Director-General of UNESCO and introductions by Sir Chris Bonington and the Alpine Convention.

The Alps are a single geographical and geological entity yet they also constitute a culturally and climatically very diverse region. Besides the Mediterranean region the Alps are the second largest ecosystem in Europe. The Alpine region today is home to 8 million people who speak eight major languages with many dialects and who are divided into eight nations.
