The Earth Series

A few years back I was fortunate enough to have been published by an unusual publisher: Reaktion Books in London. Unusual because they focus on original, beautifully designed books they keep in print for a long time. Unusual because they seem more creatively driven than financially driven.

One of their latest projects is called ‘Earth’ and is described as:

EARTH is the fascinating new series from Reaktion Books.

Written by experts who are passionate about their subject, it is the first of its kind to trace the historical significance of natural phenomena and cultural history of natural resources.

By bringing together representations from mythology, religion, art, literature, science, popular culture, cinema and television, the world around around us is explored and explained in an exciting new way.

Have a look at the series’ website with it’s great photographs.
