“Australia, the island continent”.
Editions de la Martinière has published a simply wonderful book all about Australia. Green, waterlogged tropical forests, red sand deserts, sandstone monoliths, burning dryness at the centre of a continent dotted with oasis and turquoise lagoons; climatic diversity is visible in these landscapes, beautifully photographed by Olivier Grunewald, 4-time winner of a World Press award. A breath taking setting that cannot forget the harsh threats of global warming. Geomorphologist Bernardette Gilbertas brings into focus the severity of the environmental situation of this island continent, home to unique species flora and fauna.
