Africa 2017, a wall calendar from the Alexander von Humboldt (Heye) edition, wins the opening event of the ITB BookAward 2017

Whetting appetites for the coming travel season, ’Africa 2017’ from the Alexander von Humboldt (Heye) edition won the opening prize of the ITB BookAward 2017. This large wall calendar was chosen by ITB Berlin in cooperation with the RavensBuch bookstore from Friedrichshafen.
David Ruetz, head of ITB Berlin who chaired the jury, said: “Month by month ’Africa‘, the latest calendar from Heye, explores the overwhelming beauty and diversity of southern and eastern Africa, the cradle of civilisation, with spectacularly atmospheric photos of wildlife and nature. Elephants and giraffes in Botswana, baobabs in Madagascar, mountain gorillas in Uganda, hippos, zebras and a lone cheetah in Kenya along with other unique subjects give us an image of longing for the primeval wilderness of Africa. However, the calendar communicates much more than a wealth of fine images. Looking at this work and knowing that these infinitely precious and vast areas of nature are endangered and in need of protection, one feels both humility and empathy.“
