This is a stunning photographic survey of both right and left banks of the famous canal that winds its way through Venice, past palaces, churches and museums that overlook the water.
All are illustrated with captions stating the name, date of construction and architect.
What makes this book so unique is that the pages are hand-glued together in an 'accordion-shape' so that the reader can turn each page, once it's slid out of its clear slipcase, one after another as with a normal book - or you can unfold the whole 14 yards of this title and see the Grand Canal in its astonishing entirety.
In viewing this book from the first page to the last, the reader is presented with the right bank of the canal.
Turning the book upside down and looking from the last page to the first provides a look at the left bank.
This creative book is perfect for those who have an admiration for Venice and simply beautiful photography.
