Little, Brown and Company to publish a new book by Colonel Chris Hadfield featuring photographs from the International Space Station HBG in the News

Reagan Arthur, senior vice president and publisher of Little, Brown and Company, announced today that Little, Brown has acquired rights to publish a new book by former astronaut Chris Hadfield featuring photographs from the International Space Station (ISS). YOU ARE HERE: Around the World in 92 Minutes will be in bookstores this fall. Literary agent Rick Broadhead of Rick Broadhead and Associates completed the deal.d

“Chris Hadfield’s new book, YOU ARE HERE, encapsulates his singular eye for our world as it appears from above. We first fell for his photographs over Twitter, and now we have the chance to see the earth with startling freshness in these hand-selected shots from the thousands Chris took on board the International Space Station. Chris’s new book is full of beauty, whimsy, and a keen sense for the planet we share,” said vice president and executive editor John Parsley.

Divided by continent, YOU ARE HERE represents one (idealized) orbit of the ISS. This planetary photo tour—surprising, playful, thought-provoking, and visually delightful—is also punctuated with fun, fascinating commentary on life in zero gravity. In the spirit of his bestselling An Astronaut’s Guide to Life on Earth, YOU ARE HERE opens a singular window on our planet, using remarkable photographs to illuminate the history and consequences of human settlement, the magnificence (and wit) of never-before-noticed landscapes, and the power of the natural forces shaping our world and the future of our species.
