Turkey is vast and varied, renowned for both its striking natural wonders and its splendid cultural achievements. In this magnificent book the country's extraordinary beauty is captured from the air by world-renowned photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand.

From the remains of Hellenistic Greece and the ruins of Byzantium to the glories of Ottoman Turkey, here are sites from ancient history and mythology: the cities of Troy and Ephesus, the great theatre at Aspendos, the seven hills of Istanbul glittering with countless mosques. Turkey's remarkable landscape is displayed in photographs of Cappadocia, famous for its unique lunar terrain, and Pamukkale, where hot mineral waters have created a cascade of dazzlingly white fossilized forms, gloriously revealed from above.

Turkey is brought to life in these sumptuous photographs, illuminated by the geographical, historical and cultural information in Janine Trotereau's evocative text and captions.
