Take a luminous journey deep into the heart of hidden Venice, with Frederick Franck as your guide. His quietly evocative drawings and descriptions bring to vivid life the city of islands, La Serenissima, the Queen of the Sea, “that most human of cities,” Venice.

Franck explores the exquisite nooks and crannies and unique people and places of Venice, providing an enlivening glimpse into a city he sees as a microcosm of creation, “an immense and living indoor and out­door studio.”

“Venice is so much more than canals, bridges, gondolas. It is an unbroken sequence of ever-changing moods; festive, frivolous, elegiac and melancholy, forever foreign yet totally intimate.” — from Seeing Venice
