There are many studies of Venice's art, architecture and culture, but this fascinating and wonderfully illustrated book takes a unique approach to the famous city. Marko Pogacnik draws on the four classic elements of earth, water, fire and air, as well as yin and yang and alchemy, and discovers that nothing in Venice is by chance: its shape and layout, as well as its most famous palaces and places of worship, all form a continuous hidden path through the city. Pogacnik brings his formidable experience with landscapes and lithopuncture to bear on this most stunning of cityscapes. The book is illustrated with over 250 stunning photographs and diagrams.
