Jirō Taniguchi

I recently bought the so-called Louis Vuitton Travel Book "Venice" by Jirô Taniguchi and I must say: It´s simply marvellous! I´ve never seen so perfect architectural drawings of Venice. I particularly love his many watercolours of the sea surrounding Venice, they are of a superb quality. It also has a simple story line but basically it depicts the most famous places of Venice as seen by Jirô Taniguchi. The book invites you to quiet contemplation, I recommend it to all who are attracted to Venice and love beautiful drawings.
