Item description for The World's Greatest Lighthouses by Annamaria Mariotti...

Escape into these spectacular color photographs of more than 50 of the world's most beautiful lighthouses. They hail from North American shores such as the Outer Banks, Nova Scotia, Bermuda, and the California and Oregon coasts, as well as throughout the Mediterranean, the North Sea, the South Pacific, Asian waters, and the Caribbean.This book is dedicated to the lighthouses of history, legends, films, novels, and personal reveries. Spectacular Atlantic storms rage just outside the cozy interiors, which often contain the most unusual furniture. The text covers the individual characteristics, location, and history of these extraordinary coastal monuments, together with their technical development and the complex psychology of the modern-day hermits who live in them. This book is for all who love the seacoast and its architecture.

Reviews - What do customers think about The World's Greatest Lighthouses?

For lighthouse lovers  Dec 8, 2007
This book tells the storis of many lighthouses around the world giving to lighthouses lovers, but nont only, a view on the way of construction of each light, the life of the keepers inside them, giving life to these architectural monuments and thei builders that from thousand of years helped the ships in the dark of the night. An introduction with the story of the development through the ancient times of this system of lighthening the sea gives an idea of the hard work that is beyond them. Beutiful pictures of each light illustrate this great book

 
Complete in all means  Jan 18, 2007
Very thorough and detail piece of art as well as a study. Because this is what this book is all about. A complete study with details that are hard to be gathered, followed by a photographic representation that is between the thin line of art and reality.
Congratulations to the author and the team for this project.

P.S, Excellent price!!!
