In Ruskin's Venice: The Stones Revisited, newly published in a paperback edition of the 2015 New Edition, photographer Sarah Quill has selected passages from Ruskin's The Stones of Venice and has linked them to her own photographs of Venetian architecture, so creating a fascinating guide that fuses Ruskin's vision of the city with images of the present day. Covering a wide range of subjects from palaces, churches and town houses, to bridges, courtyards and capitals Quill's glorious photographs illuminate Ruskin's words and record with skill and precision the fine architectural details described by him.

This edition of Sarah Quill's bestselling book incorporates up-to-date views of buildings which have been cleaned since originally photographed. Several of Ruskin's watercolours are included, with extracts and reproductions from his Venetian notebooks, now publicly available, and some of his original daguerreotype photographs of Venice. Sarah Quill's expert editorial annotations and commentary, incorporating extracts from Ruskin's letters from Venice, enhance our understanding of Ruskin's text and provide an essential linking thread throughout. The book has been completely re-designed to be even more user-friendly as both a reference book and a guide for travellers to Venice.

The result is a beautifully illustrated book that successfully communicates Ruskin's passion for Venice and concern for the city's architectural heritage. Uniting the historical with the present day, Ruskin's Venice: The Stones Revisited is a unique companion guide for both seasoned and first-time travellers to Venice, and will leave the reader determined to retrace Ruskin's footsteps time and time again.
