Publisher's description: In Ruskin's Venice: The Stones Revisited, newly published in a revised, extended and re-designed edition, photographer Sarah Quill has selected passages from Ruskin's The Stones of Venice and has linked them to her own photographs of Venetian architecture, so creating a fascinating guide that fuses Ruskin's vision of the city with images of the present day... This new edition of Sarah Quill's bestselling book incorporates up-to-date views of buildings which have been cleaned since originally photographed. Several of Ruskin's watercolours are included, with extracts and reproductions from his Venetian notebooks, now publicly available, and some of his original daguerreotype photographs of Venice. Sarah Quill's expert editorial annotations and commentary, incorporating extracts from Ruskin's letters from Venice, enhance our understanding of Ruskin's text and provide an essential linking thread throughout. The book has been completely re-designed to be even more user-friendly as both a reference book and a guide for travellers to Venice.
