Review

""Under [Bansemer's] tutelage I saw things that I had not noticed closely before, and a friendship developed, because I realized that with his artist's eye he could see things I didn't.""

Bansemer's Book of Florida Lighthouses is the best book on lighthouses that I have ever read. Inside, is beautiful and colorful artwork of every Florida Lighthouse. This book contains very descriptive information and how to get to the lighthouses. I have read every book on Florida Lighthouses and this one is the BEST and will be for a long time!

This was a "coffee table" book in a beach house we rented. We were really excited about it and ordered one for ourself and one for our daughter's family. We also ordered the SC and GA one for another daughter. The writing style is so homey and comfortable and the pictures are beatiful and relaxing. The stories and the paintings made us want to see all of the lighthouses. Therefore, we are planning a trip this year to see as many of them as we can. We have also found it exciting to know so much more about the 5-6 lighthouses in our area. This book really piqued our interest in lighthouses with its enjoyable writing and lovely art.

This is another superb lighthouse book from Roger Bansemer!! I have it in my collection of Bansemer books, AND I've given it regularly as a gift. Whether you're a lighthouse fan, an admirer of art, a student of history, or one who like to travel, there is something for everyone in this book. The art is outstanding, the narrative is well written and informative ( with a good sense of humor too), the layout of the book makes it easy to read and follow. It's an excellent coffee table book. I recently gave it as a gift to a Japanese friend, who was very impressed with it. This book is a real winner- another 5 star from Bansemer!!

If you love Lighthouses and/or Floriida this is a must! Unlike other books of this nature, the artists art work enhances the experience. The stories behind each location are wonderful to read. Nice coffee table book too.
