Superbly edited by Mary Lutyens from the original letters discovered by her untouched in the archives, Effie Ruskin's letters home from Venice give an unparalleled view of Victorian travel and society through the eyes of a highly intelligent and lively young woman. John Ruskin took his wife to Venice for the first time in 1849, and while he worked on books that would define the Victorian aesthetic ideal, Effie explored Venice with growing freedom and independence of thought. Rightly considered a classic both of travel literature and of writing about Victorian art and the milieu where much of it was made and appreciated, 'Effie in Venice' makes a welcome return to print.
