In Ruskin’s Venice: The Stones Revisited, photographer Sarah Quill has selected passages from Ruskin’s The Stones of Venice and has linked them to her own photographs of Venetian architecture, so creating a fascinating guide that fuses Ruskin’s vision of the city with images of the present day. Covering a wide range of subjects; from palaces, churches and town houses, to bridges, courtyards and capitals; Quill’s glorious photographs illuminate Ruskin’s words and record with skill and precision the fine architectural details described by him: intricate brickwork, coloured marble, carvings and sculpture. Condition: very good.
