The main desk at the Reading library has wrest a spectacular book from my clutches because the renewal due date has come around for Above The Earth: 365 days, a small heavy book of photographs and writing.

The photographs of Yann Artus-Bertrand cover the globe and encompass the activities of mankind in commerce, agriculture and industry and display some of the intracies, beauties and oddities of nature and geography.

This is how we move through space.
