A Venetian Bestiary
From Jan Morris, author of ‘the best book about Venice ever written’ ( Sunday Times ), here is a guide to the city unlike any other.
Illustrated with some of the many creatures who inhabit the city - from barge dogs and pigeons to the Winged Lion of St Mark - the book is an enchanting tour of Venice’s history and culture. In her irresistible voice, and with unmistakeable authority, Morris reveals an essential tenet of Venetian life: if we don’t know its animals, we don’t know Venice.
