Reviews - What do customers think about Venice Master Artisans?
Utterly beautiful Sep 7, 2007
As someone with an endless interest in Venice, and anything related to it, coming on this book was a feast beyond describing. It brings us La Serenissima's traditional crafts, offers a history of each, and introduces us to their most highly skilled practitioners in the city of today. Heyl's exquisite photographs, and Gregorin's evocative text, make for a book that any Venetophile needs to have, as does any lover of Italy, in general.
Wonderful May 13, 2007
Superb in every respect- artist selection, photography and text. Almost as good as a trip to Venice. One of the nicest books I have purchased in the last year.
