This atlas of high-resolution satellite images composes a complete portrait of the British isles, from Land's End to Orkney, Ireland to East Anglia.

Each satellite photograph is accompanied by a location map of exactly the same area from The Times Comprehensive Atlas of the World, -- and text to highlight the main natural and human-built features of the landscape, including specific points of interest, towns, geographic features and underlying geology.

This visually-stunning combination of satellite images, maps and text gives a unique view of Great Britain as seen from space -- and the first time that every acre of the British Isles is covered in one volume.
