This book is all about the umbrellas on the beaches of Italy. I bought it after a trip to Italy in March thinking it would be a fun book to look at and reminisce about our trip. Well we didn’t go to Italy in the summer so we didn’t even see the umbrellas on the beaches. Also, even if we had, I’m pretty sure we would have seen a lot of other beautiful scenery that we would have rather the book included! The description of this book does not tell you that it’s 90% focused on pictures of umbrellas! Be forewarned.
This is a wonderful book. It’s photgraphs capture the essence of the most beautiful places in Italy . Malin like myself seems obsessed with the beauty of the Mediterranean and the colorful Italian culture that surrounds it. Open the book and you are instantly on the coasts of Italy. The blueness of the water has a magical quality rarely captured on film(in deed not since images of beautiful Grace Kelly in the waters of the French Riviera in Hitchcocks’s TO CATCH A THIEF, has anyone until Malin gotten it right.) Malin’s work is pure sensual beauty . Looking at his work is the next best thing to being there. One can almost feel the gentle sea breezes and taste the limoncello. Bravo! Please keep it coming .
