Norway (Spectacular Places)

(10 customer reviews)


Norway is known for its mountains, glaciers and deeply cut coastal fjords. Bergen, with its typical colorful wooden houses, is a popular starting point for boat trips into the dramatic Sognefjord. This book shows in almost 500 pictures the Scandinavian country in its scenic variety but also in its seasonal diversity. Snow, ice, and polar lights in winter—the special light of the midnight sun in summer.

    Has to be the best Norway picture book you can buy!I was nervous about getting this since it was new and had no reviews. My wife loves Norway and has been wanting a Norway book for the coffee table as a Christmas gift. I spent hours searching and could not find one I liked anywhere, but saw the page count on this one and took a shot even though it was just released. It is even better than I hoped it would be. 80-90% of this book is made up of full photos that take up two pages. The text portions are fairly to the point and are translated into six languages. If you want beautiful pictures of Norway that are well organized into specific regions, you will not be disappointed in this book. It is large, heavy, and the pictures are breathtaking. My wife is so in love with this book!

    Many, many beautiful pictures.This seems to be largely a collection of pictures from commercial archives, like Getty. There are pictures of cities, towns, animals, and many coastal and mountain landscapes and seascapes. Given this omnium-gatherum of sources and subjects, what is remarkable is the number and variety of stunning and evocative photographs, usually well- composed and beautifully reproduced in large format.

    ImpressiveThis book is everything I was looking for. It’s a massive ‘coffee table’ type book with hundreds of colour photos of Norway segmented by region or national park. If you are thinking of Norway as a possible holiday destination this delivers inspiration in bucket loads.
