About the Crop Circle Year Book 2011:
THE CROP CIRCLE YEAR BOOK 2011 is the thirteenth in a series of year books by Steve Alexander (photographer) and Karen Alexander (writer) portraying the beautiful and mysterious crop circle phenomenon within the UK. This popular series of full colour, fine-art-reproduction books are privately published in limited numbers and come to you directly from the authors, they have become an invaluable and magical window onto the fields of southern England, and are the only annually published books on the subject. Unlike the frenzy of the past few years, and almost in an act of defiance against all the certainty and expectation professed by the crop circle world, the 2011 crop circle season started slowly and irregularly. It was if the crop circle phenomenon was struggling to manifest itself fully, as small, simple and asymmetrical formations arrived in the heavily fecund fields of oilseed rape and barley. While this seemed to distress some, for the more seasoned crop circle watcher this was a fascinating phase. All certitude, established rules and presumptions were being torn up by a kind of quiet anarchy in which the crop circles themselves seemed quelled and suppressed. However, the crop circle phenomenon is nothing if not tenacious and by July, it seemed, that it was beginning to find a way to manifest itself more fully. Whatever the obstructions had been, the persistent march of the crop circles seemed to be winning their way through the temporarily occluded veil. The beautiful Trefoil under the White Horse in Alton Barnes signalled the beginning of a series of stunning formations that raced through to the end of the season. Amongst the highlights were a City of Pyramids that appeared close to Silbury Hill, a magnificent Rose Window at Temple Balsall, a Serotonin Flower at Roundway Hill and finally a stunning Penteract, or five-dimensional Hypercube, at Cherhill.
This book combines inspirational aerial photography with though provoking text to create a unique book full of the ambience mood and atmosphere of this amazing phenomenon.
