Natural Wonders of the World is a beautiful and interesting coffee table book filled with giant, high quality photos .of just about every natural wonder you could think of and some you just could never imagine actually existing.
The wonders are divided and categorised into continents starting with North America and moving on to through each continent until we finally reach Antartica before delving into the Oceans and we finish off taking a look at extreme weather. I love that this topic was approached in this manner as you get a really great sense of each continent from landforms to forests and water features.
There is a lot of information presented on each wonder too that gives an insightful – if wide ranging – overview.
A wonderfully surprising find for your coffee table.
