Images from the World People/ Cube Book


A treasury of photographs of people from all around the world and all different walks of life. This heartwarming addition to White Star’s renowned CubeBook series celebrates the differences – and the sometimes surprising similarities – between different world cultures. More than 500 slice-of-life photographs depict family, home life, celebrations, religion, food, travel, and the arts around the world. Babies, children, adults, and the elderly engaged in everyday activities are conveyed with affection and great attention to revealing detail, the result being a unique collection of portraits that pay tribute to humanity. In a chapter on the Family and Children, readers witness tender moments between parents and their children that, regardless of the distinctive settings which are as far-flung as Africa, Asia, the U.S., and Europe, and the differing physical traits of each family, mirror each other very closely. From rustic dwellings in rural India to apartments outfitted with every convenience in American cities, we are taken into homes around the globe – and given a fascinating glimpse into the vastly differing lifestyles of people from around the world. Chapters on work, spirituality and rituals, food, and theater give us further insight into the lives of others, with vibrant photographs conveying the traditions and daily activities that set us each apart – and yet so often connect.
