A book of photographs that is also a guide and art book that is as enjoyable to read as a novel. Steeped in Greek and Roman mythology, witness to a tormented history of invasions, the isola del dolce far niente, the bengodi (land of milk and honey) has never ceased to attract poets, lovers, writers, artists, cineastes, philosophers and travellers of all extractions. Patrick Howlett-Martin, been visiting the island since 1994, describes it through a mixture of documents, photographs, reproductions of works of art and curiosities. The text is filled with erudite quotations and lines of poetry, ranging from Pablo Neruda, whose exile on the island was most famously depicted in the popular film Il Postino, to Tommaso Marinetti, the founder of Futurism. This book describes 14 seagoing itineraries around the island (numbered using Roman numerals from I to XIV) that are 14 fascinating routes to adventure. Capri by the sea is a fascinating book that makes the perfect gift for all those who are in love with the Mediterranean and its history, or simply with nature and beautiful things.
