With TIBET you are invited to follow in the footsteps of our photographers as they lead you on an inspired journey of discovery through some of the most spectacular and remote locations in the world. Ever mesmerising and mysterious, the Tibetan plateau invites you to experience this unique region, so rich in cultural tradition and sacred monuments. Open any of the twelve gatefolds to peer into the lives of these hearty people and marvel at the splendour of their landscape, sacred ritual, and exquisite, but always functional, architecture. To further enhance your experience of Tibet, the book includes a comprehensive index which references the traditional and geographic significance of each location, providing even more cultural and historic background to the text. TIBET showcases the work of a dozen internationally renowned photographers in this completely original collection of images depicting Tibetan landscapes, history, culture, and people. Each image has been thoughtfully selected for the appropriateness of its subject to the artist's style and technique. TIBET has been printed on quality paper and durably bound with reinforced materials in a large format specially chosen to preserve the fine detail and vibrant colours of the originals. TIBET has been simultaneously published in English and French editions by CYPI PRESS and CITADELLES & MAZENOD respectively.
