'To build one of the most elegant and grandest of cities where it is impossible to build,' wrote the Russian poet Herzen, 'is the madness of genius.' Around 200 photographs and lively, informative descriptions in this magnificent volume lead the reader through the labyrinth of canals and bridges that is Venice. From the splendour of St Mark's to remote islands in its lagoon, it reveals the city's compelling history of wealth, power and intrigue. Slightly off-mint.
