This is an almost like new large paperback. 1992 Turner Publishing. This copy is crisp and clean inside and out. The pages are still crisp, clean and free of markings. The binding is tight and straight, NO creasing along spine. The cover is clean and shiny with only a hint of shelf wear. Imperial octavo size or 8.5" x 11.5".

Looking at Earth is an unprecedented portrait of the planet as seen from the heavens. Continent by continent, we see Earth, not as shown on maps or globes but as it looks in images recorded by spacecraft, revealing aspects of the planet previously hidden. Spectacular wonders - the Grand Canyon, Mount Fuji, the Andes, Africa's great rift - emerge in great sweeping panoramas and appear as even greater wonders.
The book also describes Earth-viewing spacecraft and their instruments. It was produced as part of the Smithsonian Institution's Columbus Quincentenary program. The book is based on some of the research conducted for the "Looking At Earth" exhibition once held at the National Air and Space Museum.
