This large-size wimmel-boardbook in leporello format can be opened to a length of nearly three-and-a-half metres. And one really ought to do so! Stand it upright on the floor, lay down in front of it, and take delight (preferably with others) in exploring it. On the one side you will find a panorama of mountain ranges that extend across borders and continents. Craggy mountains, snow-covered volcanoes, rivers, lakes, meadows, and terraced fields, inhabited by llamas, bears, penguins and marmots, by mountain climbers, shepherds, hermits, and alpine horn players. The reverse side holds amazing views of the insides of these mountains. Caves and grottos, underground lakes, magma chambers, volcanic pipes, mines and cave paintings, mushrooms, bats, and all sorts of fantastic creatures. In brilliant colours, Andrea Antinori has painted a cornucopia of exuberant imagery, full of imagination and wit. The joy of detail and storytelling is in evidence everywhere. An immense source of pleasure and a feast for the eyes! [JW]
