Detailed Product Description

Australia, 2005, 1st edition. New large format hardcover with dust jacket. 

SIGNED by Simon Carter

This is a heavy, large format book. Extra postage will be requested for Priority Mail and International Mail.

This book is a visual celebration of modern technical climbing by one of the sport’s foremost photographers. Without Hollywood tricks or special effects, Carter gives us a good, hard honest look at modern climbing at its finest. 

World Climbing: Images from the Edge is an extraordinary photographic odyssey that is as inspirational as it is beautiful. Rich colour, unlikely perspectives and dizzying heights combine to mesmerise the spectator and transport them into another realm. This extensive work captures over ninety different climbers in action at twenty-nine climbing areas from twelve countries. It covers climbing from its easiest to its hardest but above all its best.

  • This is the second book by Australian photographer Simon Carter. The first book Rock Climbing in Australia sold out and has now been re-printed. It received international critical acclaim and was the foundation for Carter being awarded the prestigious King Albert Medal of Merit in 2000. Large format, hardcover coffee-table photo book.
  • Featuring over 230 spectacular colour images.
  • Each of the 29 areas opens with an introductions giving interesting insights.
  • 192-pages, measuring 280mm high x 250mm wide.
  • Featuring a elegant modern design by top Australian designer Jo Mills.
  • High production values have been embraced throughout.
