A stunning photography book of UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Legacy captures the Earth’s most significant and beautiful places with gorgeous images and informative text.
This gorgeously designed book celebrates UNESCO’s mission to preserve and protect natural and cultural treasures around the globe.
A curated collection of hundreds of art-quality images photographed in association with UNESCO, this book presents a pictorial overview of World Heritage Sites—from Machu Picchu to tropical forests of the Congo to Prague’s historic center—along with text detailing their cultural or scientific history and significance. The images capture these awe-inspiring sites and provide glimpses into dozens of remote cultures and little=seen landscapes. Encompassing one hundred locations of cultural, historical, scientific, or other significance, Legacy takes the reader on a magical journey through natural and human history.
The Our Place World Heritage project collaborates with UNESCO to photograph World Heritage sites, their expert photographers documenting these world wonders for those who might not ever be able to visit—especially with so many sites in danger of destruction.
