THE A5 BOOK REVIEW
One of our top recommendations for simply amazing photography unsurprisingly comes from National Geographic, with their book, Stunning Photographs. As the title suggests, the true focus here is not really travel but pure amazing photography, with sections on Mystery, Harmony, Wit, Discovery, Energy and Intimacy. Not a lot of text, but there are some interesting comments describing how the photographer took the specific picture. The hard cover book is roughly 400 pages with over 200 images. Definitely an impressive coffee table book that people will actually pick up and peruse, and of course a great gift.

National Geographic Magazine
National Geographic is of course best known as one of the world's best magazines on science, nature and world cultures. Subscribers will definitely be captivated with each issue. Magazines are unfortunately losing popularity, and so this makes for a great gift for anyone who loves learning about the broader world around them. learn more here about National Geographic Magazine.
