Synopsis

An Illustrated Atlas of Australia and the Pacific by Malcolm Porter

The Continents in Close-Up series explores individual continents through a dynamic combination of photographs, maps, artwork, diagrams, charts and short paragraphs of information. There is a page for each of the major countries and areas featuring a map showing the major cities, rivers and mountain ranges, physical information such as population and area, and other highlighted points of interest whether they be cultural, economic or natural. Another key element of these wonderful books is the thematic maps which show the whole of the continent colour coded to reflect populations densities, beliefs, climate and vegetation, ecology and environment, economy and politics and history.
