Dream of Venice – Jacopo Sansovino said:

It is held by some that this word VENETIA signifies VENI ETIAM, that is, come again, and again, for however oft you come, you will always see new things, and new beauties.

Venice has been captured in million images, both by painters and photographers and yet no painting or image is ever the same. There isn’t a single inch of Venice which won’t be beautiful once portrayed on canvas or captured on camera. Even the smallest and insignificant detail, if it is Venetian, acquires a superior significance and beauty.

Dream of Venice by Charles Christopher

I have known JoAnn for a few years now, we actually met when Dream of Venice was a little embryo in her mind, a true dream which she was determined to bring to life!

And through her and Charles’ sheer determination, their true and honest love for the city of water, their common passion for anything which is beautiful, they managed to create one of the best photo books on Venice which was ever published.

It is the perfect liminal space induced by fog, water, and stones, which never align.

    I absolutely need to get a copy of this book. As a winner of the Italian Talks Twitter contest for Baglioni Hotels, I opted for Margie Miklas’ book “Colors of Naples and The Amalfi Coast” since it is a part of Italy I have yet to see…however I would have also liked to win a copy of “Dream of Venice!” I know what my next book purchase will be.
    Visiting Venice never gets old. Photographing Venice never gets old. I dream of Venice and it’s only an hour away from me.
    I’m really looking forward to JoAnn and Charles’ perspectives of the ancient floating city.
    Your review is encouraging! I’ll let you know once I’ve read it.
