Enchanted Venice in black & white

As the vaporetto travels down the Grand Canal, you see an elegant palazzo which houses the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, a reminder that you are in one of the world's great centers of art. Now there's a new book of Venice photos, all in black & white, of which the former director of the museum says, "This remarkable anthology, thanks to the wintery season, the tones of black and white and the virtual absence of tourists, offers us the romantic melancholy, the poetry of reflections and the beauty of light that are the magic of Venice."

The photo at the top of this article is my own, and it doesn't do the scene justice. For that, you need the book, the whole book, and nothing but the book. Magnificent images, passionate words. Order this book (the third in a series of photo essays about La Serenissima) for the traveler on your list. Order two and keep one for yourself.
