It’s amazing the good stuff you can find way in the back corner of
our library. This is another beautiful coffee table book of photographs
of Venice. This one is a nice manageable size. It includes a
brief run-through of the history of Venice, but the bulk of the book is
beautiful photos of Venice.
They have another book in the same series on Paris, which we also
have at the library, not far from this one.
Perfect for spending a half-hour reliving a trip to Venice. This
also would be good for anyone planning to visit Venice, to get an idea of
what to see. And of course, it’s also perfect for the vicarious traveller.
