In this episode of the CTCs we feature this beautiful hardcover book by Bernhard Lang, Aerial views. The book, in fact, features photos taken by Lang from a birds-eye point of view, taken during different times of the year.

If your coffee table is looking kind of naked and you and your house guests are fans of colorful photography, then this is the book for you. Buy HERE or take a look below:
