Each title in the Orient Express Travel Series is designed to express the elegance, the art, the culture and "insider knowledge" of the old and the new for each exceptional city destination and to provide a lasting keepsake of a memorable visit. Venice Revisited is an elegant photographic guide that takes the reader on an exquisite tour through the lifestyles of Venice: stealing through the back waterways of the city; cavorting at the Carnival in a specially commissioned mask; shopping for sumptuous fabrics or glassware at the secret ateliers of master craftsmen; or sipping a cocktail at the infamous Harry's Bar. The glorious, specially commissioned photography offers unusual and familiar images to inspire and treasure. This visual feast is accompanied by a narrative on the city that offers nuggets of insider knowledge, which often can't be found in other city books - that special place to eat; where to find the best and most exclusive shopping and entertainment; which museums are a must; or where to find special courses on painting, wine appreciation, or cooking. Special features include quotes from celebrities, artists, writers and musicians who are associated with the city, their favourite haunts and their contributions to art and culture. Illustrated to capture the nostalgia of times past and photographed to reveal the classic and the contemporary side of each city, the titles in this series offer the discerning traveller irreplaceable and enduring mementos of cherished memories [via]
