I bought this book under the idea its subject was Venice's history rather than its aruitecture Well that was not the case It's well documented interesting and enlightening only that perhaps it was a bit dettached from what I was looking for Unless you are really interested on the city's art or architecture I would not advice you to buy it It is otherwise a very interesting book however it took me a while to finish it I dropped it several times to be honest and I do like art but maybe I was not that much interested on the topic to begin with A dry paperback on Venetian Art during the Renaissance featuring black and white images that were freuently several pages apart from where they are mentioned in the text plus many many incidents where the author would go on into detail about pieces of art without providing any imagery of it reuiring one to search for their nearest bit of technology and google the image for themselves
