This delightful jewel-like book evokes unmistakably Italian landscapes and cityscapes. Anne Desmet's pen commits every detail to paper, and the small-scale format emphasises her distinctive flair for capturing the relationship between extreme foreground and distance. This is a unique opportunity to explore Italy, from the Apennines to the Veneto, through the eyes of a meticulous and precise artist.
