The Road to Rome PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Road to Rome free pdf All roads lead to Rome--and no one captures the journey in luminous watercolors quite as brillantly as Marlene McLoughlin. Leafing through "Road to Rome" is like relaxing on a slow train through Italy, with an artist at your side. By means of her watercolor sketchbooks, readers travel from Florence to Rome, and to the legendary hill towns of Arezzo, Siena, Montepulciano, Assisi, Todi, and Cortona, through breathtaking landscapes, unearthly light, and the rustic beauty of the Tuscan and Umbrian countryside. Exquisite watercolors, pen-and-ink sketches, and brief captions depict the land, the food, and the character of one of the most beautiful places on earth in all of its varied details--a shadowy, overgrown Renaissance villa, yellow fields of mustard, a dish of ripe lemons- the Tiber at dawn. Richly evocative, wonderfully inviting, and thoroughly charming. "Road to Rome" is both a traveler's and a dreamer's delight.
