About Book

A Venetian Bestiary is a celebration in words and pictures of a 'mighty menagerie of fact and fantasy': the animals of Venice, from its ubiquitous cats and barge dogs to the Golden Stallions and Winged Lion of St Mark. Never has Jan Morris written more enchantingly than in this delightful tribute to the birds and beasts of her favourite city.
  • About Jan Morris

    Jan Morris was born in 1926 of a Welsh father and an English mother, and when she is not travelling she lives with her partner Elizabeth Morris in the top left-hand corner of Wales, between the mountains and the sea.

    Her books include Coronation Everest, Venice, The Pax Britannica Trilogy (Heaven's Command, Pax Britannica, and Farewell the Trumpets), and Conundrum. She is also the author of six books about cities and countries, two autobiographical books, several volumes of collected travel essays and the unclassifiable Trieste and the Meaning of Nowhere. A Writer's World, a collection of her travel writing and reportage from over five decades, was published in 2003. Hav, her novel, was published in a new and expanded form in 2006.
