Monumental Venice presents breathtaking panoramic views of Venice’s famed monuments and historic sites, as well as little-known gems. Covering many fascinating styles and periods, it features bustling Piazza San Marco, watery churches and abbeys, such as San Giorgio and Il Redentore, tranquil isolated squares and unfrequented districts, and marble palazzos lining the Grand Canal. Straddling the horseshoe-shaped Grand Canal, and viewed from the lofty campaniles of San Marco and San Giorgio, Venice is an apt subject for the panoramic photographer, and in Jacques Boulay the City of the Doges has found a talented heir to Venice’s well-known photographic tradition. Venice seamlessly melds old and new, the Gothic Ca’ d’Oro and Peggy Guggenheim’s outstanding museum collection, the ancient Palazzo Pisanti-Moretta and the rioutous 1920s Hispano-Moorish delirium of the Lido. Boulay’s achingly beautiful photographs make it evident that Venice is far more than a collection of historic buildings, sixteenth-century fish markets, and public squares; its numerous secret gardens, canals, and quiet waterways make it one of the most verdant cities in Europe. Venetians are both urban and urbane, and Boulay reveals the brightly hued fisherman’s houses of Burano, picturesque covered passages and cul-de-sacs, and the legendary Caffè Florian, where generations of Venetians and visitors partake of Negronis or Americanos. The panoramic vision of Jacques Boulay makes age-old Venice young again.

Praise for Monumental Venice:

"This is literally the biggest book of the season, measuring 19 inches wide and 12 inches high. Some of the fold-outs are four feet wide, making the viewer feel as though she's crossing one of Venice's bridges or riding the canals. . . . Lots of fun to look at." --St. Paul Pioneer Press

"Venice has seen record high tides in the past few weeks, encouraging visitors to take a dip in (rather than stroll through) St. Mar...

Jacques Boulay has been taking panoramic photographs of Venice since 1996. His numerous publications include studies of Paul Poiret and Baccarat, as well as The Book of Linen. Jean-Philippe Follet is the author and translator of numerous books on the culture and art of Venice.
