The Overview
By Willow Defebaugh

Book Cover 03: Evolution

by Ben Toms

Metamorphosis begins within. In order to mend our relationship with this planet, we need more than sustainability: we need a change of spirit. From the reciprocity of trees to the long view of volcanoes to the patience of spiders, The Overview illuminates the wisdom of the Earth and its many teachers. An anthology of meditative essays from Atmos Editor-in-Chief Willow Defebaugh alongside immersive photography of ecosystems around the world, it’s a pathway for reconnecting with nature through reverence, balance, evolution, and healing.

With photography by Chloé Milos Azzopardi, Jacques Brun, Christian Cassiel, Laurence Ellis, Théo de Gueltzl, Collin Hughes, Annie Lai, Gleeson Paulino, Ben Toms, Vivek Vadoliya, Alba Yruela, and more

The Overview book is 388 pages in length, printed on 100% recycled paper. It is hard-cover, linen-wrapped, and Swiss-bound. Its dimensions are 8x10 inches. The Overview is distributed to bookstores in the US, EU, and UK by Antenne.

Nature isn’t only to be studied, but observed through all the senses. In creating The Overview, Atmos wanted to present an experience that was immersive—not only with words and visuals, but also with sound. In order to realize this vision, music director Peter M. Murray composed an album of ambient meditations that correspond to the four chapters of this book and feature snippets from the orchestra of sounds that comprise life on Earth.
