9780002201711: A Moment in Time...: The Millennium Celebrated Around the Globe

A Moment in Time is an innovative, stylish photographic tour of millennium celebrations and events across five continents, with 300 colour pictures.

Aimed squarely at the international market, through its 300 photographs A Moment in Time shows how the turn of the millennium was marked on every continent of the planet. This book will be a unique, innovative celebration of the planet’s cultural diversity, and that factor that undeniably unifies us all – Time.

Published in partnership with one of the biggest global news syndication agencies, the book’s 300 pictures will be laid out in a graphic, immediate way to show events as they unfolded on 31 December 1999 and 1 January 2000; text of no more than 10,000 words will give concise, punchy descriptions of other events, some minor incidents, some of great magnitude, and all selected to convey the essence of the experience.

Structurally and editorially, A Moment in Time has been planned to work equally coherently for all co-edition partners around the world. Using a system of separate, compartmentalized signatures for each of the time zones that can be bound in a different order, each co-edition will give local celebrations top billing before travelling east to discover how the rest of the world rose to the occasion.
