A Literary Photo Essay
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
A contemporary photographic journey through Dublin that brings history to life. This explores the city's Viking heritage; its role as a Norman and later British seat of power; and finally its emergence as Ireland's vibrant capital during the Celtic Tiger years. Through lushly illustrated purpose-made images, this book looks at Dublin's Georgian architecture, classic bridges, famous pubs, as well as its parks, streets, and institutions. Among the features are chapters on beer and pubs, the St. Patrick's Day Parade, and the defining role of the River Liffey.
A refreshing visual treat.
Great guidebook to unconventional Dublin
Seeing Dublin through the eyes of a non-tourist gives you a totally different and enjoyable view. The photographs themselves are worth the purchase price of the eBook -- layed out the way an electronic books should be for the iPad.
A real look at a City I've visited often but clearly never saw.
This book is spell-binding. The words clearly speak of Irish Heritage and a man who loves Ireland. I would find myself reading sentences over and over again for their beauty. The pictures are phenomenal! Each tells a story! I wish I had had this book with me on my trips to Dublin - would have spent way more time really getting to know this wonderful city.
Brian Solomon clearly has two great talents, no -- make that three. He can write, he is a brilliant photographer, and he has a talent for seeing beneath the obvious!! This book shares his insight, and his marvelous grasp on both Irish history and its literature!!
Bravo for contributing the best Irish travel book I've ever had the privilege to read!!
