More About Israel from Above by Hanit Grintberg; Itamar Grinberg
 
 
 
Overview
Sweeping over the ancient desert of biblical imaginings and the lush valleys that signify the progress of the modern state, the bird's-eye images in this handsome volume present the varied landscapes that exemplify the very diversity of Israel itself. Readers are witness to the incongruous juxtapositions that exist within Israel: the fruit orchards of the fertile Jordan Valley and the stark desert landscape of the Sinai, the ancient city of Hebron and the modern skyline of Tel Aviv. From the Dead Sea, the lowest point on earth, to the heights of Galilee, this book presents us with the rare opportunity to view an entire region at a glance. Centuries-old temples and archaeological sites where one can trace the roots of Christianity and Judaism make a fascinating contrast to the sleek skyscrapers of Israel's modern cities. Throughout the book, captions present a well-rounded picture of a young nation with an ancient history.
