About the Author

Patrick Howlett-Martin is a journalist, writer and diplomat and, above all, an enthusiast of the sea and a deep diver.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A more appropriate title for this book would be "Capri from the Sea", as it is an outgrowth of what was planned as a diving guide to the waters around Capri. There are lots of photographs of various underwater grottoes as well as of various parts of Capri's shoreline. There are also many pictures of works of art relating to same.

This book is not what I expected it to be, but it made a great "friendship" gift to a friend whose background is Italian and who has taken up diving. She says it is wonderful.
