Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Abbeville Press, who owns it? This is a landmark publisher that brings out oversized books with impressive paper quality and marvelous printing. This book is oversized, which means it is really oversized and weighs enough to make your arms ache if you hold it for long. The paintings imbued with the color of the originals are mostly full page but a few of them are pull outs which spans four pages. Florence is one of the few cities in the world that has an outstanding cultural history of painting and sculpture. Remember David? So why the four and not five stars? The narrative lacks punch and is not comprehensive. The book as a treasure trove of paintings is a remarkable achievement of publishing and printing especially these days of e-books! Recommended for all those who enjoyed a visit to Fierenza!
