Mexico connotes romantic images of lolling in a hammock suspended between palm trees, strolling on pristine beaches, and exploring ancient Mayan ruins. The reality of Mexico is just as picturesque as the fantasy. The photographs in this handsome, compact volume take readers on an aerial adventure over Mexico, spotlighting the diverse landscapes and fascinating archaeological sites that contribute to the lure of this compelling country: vast deserts, lush jungle, snow-capped volcanoes, modern cities, colonial towns, and, or course, miles of unspoiled beaches. The design of the pages and reduced album format of this volume showcase the panoramic qualities of the photographs, providing readers with a unique opportunity to savor the unique characteristics of an entire region at a single glance. From the ruins of Tulum perched high over the sea to the pyramids of Coba nestled in the dense undergrowth of the Yucatan Peninsula, from the glamour of such luxurious resorts as Acapulco and Cancun to the lagoons, sandbars, and mangrove swamps of Quintana Roo, the photographs of Antonio Attini convey the endless appeal of Mexico. The natural beauty of such marvels as Copper Canyon, which covers more than 20,000 square miles and is four times larger than the Grand Canyon, are juxtaposed with the sophistication of Mexico City and the historic legacy of colonial towns, presenting the many facets of Mexico in glorious full color.
