An innovative format and breathtaking concept meet in this trip around the world and back again. This 32-page book fan folds out into a single panorama that takes the reader from India to Ecuador and from Iceland to Romania. Each natural scene seamlessly runs into the next, incorporating each area's natural beauty and indigenous wildlife. On the reverse of the fanfold, the same scenes and locations are shown at night. It's a beautiful and memorable look at the world from differing perspectives, eye-catching and completely unique.
