The photographs in this book are personally selected by acclaimed photographer Martin Bowman
from many thousands in his collection. You might say Martin knows the county inside out, for he
has spent many hours flying over the Norfolk landscape – and walking through it.
From countryside to coast, through towns and villages, and along the ancient city streets of Norwich,
the author takes us on an unfogettable visual tour of the county. Norfolk Above and Beyond is a book
that will be enjoyed equally by all those who share Martin’s love of Norfolk, whether they are residents
or visitors to the county. Here his superb aerial photographs are set alongside photos that capture the
intimate essence of Norfolk. As the title of the book suggests, the reader is taken above and beyond
the usual view of the county, into a realm that few of us will ever see first hand.
Martin W. Bowman has established an international reputation for his
superb aerial photography. He is also a widely respected military
historian who has written over seventy books on aviation and related
Martin lives in Norwich, Norfolk, England and is active in historical
research concerning East Anglia and the many RAF and USAAF
squadrons that were based there during the War. He also has a passion for flying in military aircraft and
driving British Racing Green sports cars.
