Croatia - Aspects of Art, Architecture and Cultural Heritage to be launched
A new book on Croatia will be launched by The International Trust for Croatian Monuments and Frances Lincoln Publishers on 4 November at Sotherans in London.
The book, "Croatia: Aspects of Art, Architecture and Cultural Heritage," includes contributions by leading British, American and Croatian writers and scholars, including John Julius Norwich, Timothy Clifford, Marcus Binney, Brian Sewell Sheila McNally, Stjepan Cosic, Branko Kirigin, J.J. Wilkes, Christopher de Hammell, Donal Cooper, David Ekserdjian and Josko Belamaric.
The book is a scholarly study in the English language dealing with Croatia's extraordinary artistic heritage. Leading specialists analyse key cultural developments in the country's history, from the extensive Roman remains on the Adriatic coast to the grand houses and art collections of continental Croatia.
The book is intended for English-speaking readers, the contributors are world-renowned specialists and there is some new, never before published material with extensive sources and references. It should appeal both to scholars and to intelligent travellers.
The essays address iconic monuments like Diocletian's palace at Split and the walled city of Dubrovnik alongside more unfamiliar treasures. The book sets Croatia's cultural past in context, reflecting the country's unique history at the crossroads of Italy, Central Europe and the Mediterranean.
John Julius Norwich says in the book’s introduction: "To the traveller arriving in Croatia from across the Adriatic, the land seems indeed to have been blessed by providence. Nowhere in the whole Mediterranean will you find an interplay of land and sea more breathtakingly lovely than along the Dalmatian Coast."
