Overview

Romance and adventure and a sunlit sea—the stuff that dreams are made of—inspire a major new series from Thames & Hudson.The most magical islands of the Mediterranean are beautifully evoked by renowned photojournalist Jeremy Horner in the first volume of this series. Some, like Capri, are already well known; others, like Croatian Vis, are just entering the consciousness of island travelers. "Velvet-green, rimmed with golden sands, and set in shallow turquoise waters" is Jeremy Horner's description of the islands off the coast of Dalmatia. Here, Brioni—once the private home of President Tito—is now one of the region's most exclusive hideaways. Hvar, a verdant ridge rising out of the Adriatic, was an outpost of the Venetian empire and enjoys a legacy of elegant architecture, as does neighboring Korcula, sometimes referred to as "Little Dubrovnik." The main islands of the Bay of Naples—Capri and Ischia—have always been attractive to travelers from northern Europe and America, and all their delights are fully reflected in this book. But what of Procida, whose colorful fishing port of Corricella became famous as the setting for the film Il Postino? Equally fascinating and lively are the Pontine, Aeolian, and Egadi Islands. Corfu, Rhodes, and Mykonos have been included from the galaxy of Greek island gems, but so too have delicious Santorini and less familiar Zakynthos, an Ionian paradise of white beaches, towering cliffs, and blue caves. Whether the desire is for an unspoiled coastline (Gozo), escape from the obvious (Djerba off the coast of Tunisia), Riviera sophistication without the accompanying overdevelopment (Porquerolles), or a Spanish interlude (Majorca and Ibiza), everyone's dreams will be fully satisfied here. 200 color photographs.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Horner, whose photographs have been featured in National Geographic, Time, and Newsweek, here profiles islands associated with six countries bordering on the Mediterranean-Spain, France, Italy, Tunisia, Croatia, and Greece-as well as the islands of Sicily and Malta. These 25 islands reflect a spectacular variety in topography, culture, architecture, sociology, and tourist opportunities; all have rich and varied histories of association with mythological gods, as well as occupation by Romans, Venetians, Nazis, and Communists. Horner's 246 vibrant photographs, which feature landscapes, churches, monasteries, Roman ruins, medieval walls, fortifications, markets, fields, town squares, and the islands' residents and workers, brilliantly evoke the allure of these gorgeous and romantic lands. He also includes a ten-page "Travellers' Guide," with information for each island on transportation, hotels, restaurants, sites, and events, plus helpful telephone numbers, addresses, and web sites. The first volume in a new series called "Island Dreams"-with subsequent books to follow on the Caribbean and the Pacific-this title is warmly recommended for all public libraries.-Melinda Stivers Leach, Precision Editorial Svcs., Wondervu, CO Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
