W. W. Norton is pleased to announce that The Norton Book of Nature Writing is now available in a paperback college edition.
The definitive anthology of nature writing in English, this book has been significantly expanded and is now accompanied by a field guide of valuable resources for both teachers and students.
A picture tells a thousand stories, but the one it doesnt tell is how the shot was made. Barbara London and John Uptons Photography is an all inclusive look at the craft of photography. This book will help any amateur move up a few notches, and it serves as a refresher course for professionals as well. The sixth edition of this classic work (the first was published in 1976) includes a companion Web site with interactive activities, Web resources, and a learning archive. Amply illustrated with at least one photograph or diagram on almost every page, Photography is the one reference work every student of photography must have even those who will never set foot in a classroom.
