Overview

Ireland: Erin: Land of Saints and Giants by Elisabetta Canoro

Seagulls circle cliffs that tower above the wind-lashed, foaming blue seas. Hundreds of feet above the sheer rock face lie endless stretches of green broken only by the geometry of ancient stone walls. Ireland is the land where time moves slowly, where even today long-eared donkeys pull wooden carts laden with peat, just as they did ten centuries ago. Ireland is a land of great archaeological wealth, of islands and archipelagos anchored in deeply rooted traditions, of small cities and quaint fishing villages, of moorlands and Celtic vestiges, of poverty and noble suffering. It is an island whose capital, Dublin, a city of man-sized spaces, has succeeded over the years to hold onto its unique identity while sensitively embracing a cosmopolitan future.

The aim of this volume, with its splendid pictures and highly informative text, is to search back to the very roots of that special magic that makes Ireland one of the most loved places in Europe. Panoramic photographs and vignette portraits capture both the penetrating beauty of land and sea and also the time-worn features of men and women in the most remote corners of the country. The book offers unrivaled scenes of everyday life, both in the countryside and in the constant chaos of the capital; its pages immortalize the myriad aspects of Ireland as it takes the reader on a voyage of discovery, on an itinerary of evocative images, through one of Europe’s most rewarding and unspoiled borderlands.
