Descriptions

Non-fiction books for young adults, first published in England in 1988. The books are often noted for their numerous photographs and detailed illustrations, which are always set against a white background (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eyewitness_Books) (English, Unclassified)

Although later editions have a more prominent "DK" or "Dorling Kindersley" the original and probably most memorable version Eyewitness Books should be favored. (English, Unclassified)
