This gift book is a celebration in vibrant brush strokes of one of the most-visited and romantic cities in the world.
Isabelle de Borchgrave arrives in Venice via the lagoon, with its singular luminosity and its scattered islands. She is enchanted by the city and its canals, vaparettos, water-taxis, gondolas, romantic bridges, and whimsical facades.
After window shopping in chic boutiques, de Borchgrave ventures into the markets, bursting with life and colour, before leading us to hidden museums, charming hotels, and restaurants.
Illustrated throughout with charming paintings, My Venetian Sketchbook also features de Borchgrave's favourite addresses, allowing the reader to follow in the artist's footsteps and experience her very personal take on Venice.
