Description

A story of Capri told by someone who knows and loves it deeply, Patrick Howlett-Martin has been visiting the island since 1994 and describes it through a mixture of documents, photographs, reproductions of works of art, and curiosities. The text is filled with erudite quotations and lines of poetry, ranging from Pablo Neruda, whose exile on the island was most famously depicted in the popular film Il Postino to Tommaso Marinetti, the founder of the futurists. Capri by the Sea is a fascinating book that makes the perfect gift for all those who are in love with the Mediterranean and its history, or simply with nature and beautiful things.show more
