A stunning and unique collection of satellite images of Earth that offer an unexpected look at humanity, derived from the wildly popular Daily Overview Instagram account.

Inspired by the 'Overview Effect' - a sensation that astronauts experience when given the opportunity to look down and view the Earth as a whole - the breathtaking, high-definition satellite photographs in OVERVIEW offer a new way to look at the landscape that we have shaped. More than 200 images of industry, agriculture, architecture, and nature highlight incredible patterns while also revealing a deeper story about human impact. This extraordinary photographic journey around our planet captures the sense of wonder gained from a new, aerial vantage point and creates a perspective of Earth as it has never been seen before.

'Stunning, surprising and intriuging photographs of Earth from the skies.' Guardian

'Absolutely gorgeous, yet absolutely gut-wrenching' Wired
