An absolute delight to read, view and hear the magic of Venice
This book is like no other. Right from the start, it transports you to Venice with delightful sights and sounds. The book is beautifully and lovingly written but the photos and video clips are true masterpieces. The love that David has for Venice is evident and he has managed to make the reader feel just as drawn to the place. In fact, so much so that, thanks to this book, my husband and I have booked a trip to Venice in upcoming October. I plan on taking many photos but I doubt they will come anywhere close to what David has managed to capture. This is a book that should be seen by everyone and it would make a lovely gift as well. Well done, David and I cannot wait to see what you will choose for your next project.
