Sahara au jour le jour
New title



The magic of the desert throughout a year...

Deserts have always inspired the greatest poets, writers and artists, and has attracted travellers and explorers like a magnet. In this book, Alain and Berny Sèbe share their passion for the greatest desert on earth, the Sahara, through almost four hundred photographs taken during their expeditions in no less than six of the major Saharan countries (Algeria, Egypt, Libya, Morocc, Mauritania, Tunisia). These photographs come accompanied with select quotations of all periods, taken from work forming Saharan literature in French, English, German, Spanish and Arabic (including local proverbs). With a quotation and a breath-taking photograph for each day of the year, this book shows the inexhaustible diversity of this desert, and offers a unique insight into the multi-faceted cultures and landscapes of the Sahara.
