In Ruskin's Venice: The Stones Revisited, photographer Sarah Quill has selected passages from Ruskin's The Stones of Venice and has linked them to her own photographs of Venetian architecture. Covering a wide range of subjects from palaces and town houses, to courtyards and capitals, Quill's glorious photographs illuminate Ruskin's words and record with skill and precision the fine architectural details he describes. Several of Ruskin's watercolors are included, with extracts and reproductions from his Venetian notebooks. Sarah Quill's expert editorial annotations and commentary enhance our understanding of Ruskin's text. The book has been completely redesigned to be even more user-friendly as both a reference book and a guide for travellers to Venice.
