  • Book of Pictures on Antarctica


    Could you recommend a good book with pictures of Antarctica. What I am looking for is a book ABOUT the pictures, and not so much about Antarctica in terms of information, etc. Good photographs, mostly of landscapes, and some wildlife I guess.

    Thank you.

    Hi Pierrot, there's a page of current in-print books here In order, I'd go for:

    Antarctica: the Beautiful - Mike Lucas
    Antarctica: The Blue Continent - by David McGonigal, Lynn Woodworth

    With Scott to the Pole - Herbert Ponting, illustrated
    South with "Endurance": The Antarctic Photographs of Frank Hurley

    Of course if you're incredibly rich, there is no other choice than:

    Antarctica: Explorer Series, Vol. 1 by Pat Keough & Rosemarie Keough

    If money is more of an issue I'd try going to your nearest town and looking in the "remaindered" bookshops - the ones that sell books at a fraction of their original price as they didn't sell in the proper bookshops.

    There have been a lot of really good Antarctic books of the type you're asking for produced, but they tend not to last beyond the first printing and so fade into obscurity - I guess the publishers are always looking for something new and there's always someone new arriving from Antarctica with a whole pile of pictures to start a new book off.
