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 .
This book was not my cup of tea. It reminded me of my obnoxious cousin’s Instagram pics of her trip to Italy put into a thin, unimpressive book. It looked tiny next to my other coffee table books. This book contains pictures of a hand holding an ice cream cone/ drink with Italy in the background. And umbrellas! Oh, the umbrellas. Be prepared for page after page of aerial pictures of coastlines with tons of umbrellas. The photographer even devoted a page with a quote saying something to the effect of “ I just love vintage umbrellas along the coastline”. Yeah, we can tell. Very amateur. However, if you enjoy gorgeous, glossy photos of Italy in a large sumptuous coffee table book, get Slim Aaron’s La Dolce Vita. You’ll love it.
I’m disappointed with the quality of the book. Purchased it as a gift but the material feels cheaper, not as high quality as other coffee table books. Also the print quality isn’t as high as I expected, making the images look less impressive.
Beautiful coffee table book. Like some other reviewers said, I wish it wasn’t so many pics of umbrellas. His shots of the beaches and homes on the coast are more beautiful in my opinion. But it’s still a pretty coffee table book. I wish it were longer. FYI it was not protected before shipping. It was just thrown in a shipping box and the front cover has a gouge on it.
After spending a week on the Amalfi coast this book brought back so many memories. All of the photos are gorgeous and makes me want to go back again and experience what I saw when I was on a small boat with special friends looking up to the Amalfi Coast . Bravo ❤️❤️❤️
I bought this newest Gray Malin book the day it came out! Received it 2 days later and I love it. I have all of his books, and a few of his prints. His work is stunning, uplifting and fun. He’s also a super nice guy! He works really hard, especially to please his customers. Book signings daily all over the country. His customer service is the best ever. I had a small issue with a beach tray of his and it was replaced immediately. TREAT YOURSELF!
