***Romantic Irish Landscapes

by Iain Zaczek

Photography by David Lyons

Reviewed March 9, 2002.
Abbeville Press, 1998.  160 pages.

This is a half-size coffee table book.  When I saw it in the Daedalus Books ( catalog for $10 (List price is $27.50.), I couldn’t resist. 

I was not disappointed.  The pictures of Ireland are fabulous.  The text added interest.  The author tells about the legends and history behind the famous landmarks pictured.  I was delighted to see that my seven-year-old son is also reading through it, in memory of our wonderful trip last summer.  This book is a bargain for anyone who’s fallen in love with Ireland or who dreams of visiting it some day.
