Panoramas of Portugal: From Lisbon to Cabo da Roca (Travel Photo Art #8) (Paperback)
Travelers get more out of their vacation by starting with the artist's perspective in Panoramas of Portugal.
Portugal is perhaps best known for being the first truly global empire. Its maritime exploration during the early part of the Age of Discovery, the 15th and 16th centuries, provided an influx of wealth through the spice trade. The Joanine era saw more than spices ship through her ports. Gold, wheat, copperware, cloths, tools, wine, and horses were all traded.
Today Portugal is a striking place for tourism with unique architecture, a sunny climate, and Mediterranean culture. The cuisine is renowned, and fresh seafood spiced with chili and black peppers, saffron and olive oil can be found at inexpensive restaurants.
Visitors to Portugal can expand their knowledge base with an artist's view of Lisbon, Amadora, Cabo da Roca, Sintra, and Cascais. Prepare yourself for Sao Jorge Castle, Belem Tower, Bairro Alto, Alfama, the Carmo Convent, Fado and the nightlife, and that red roof cityscape with the color photos in Panoramas of Portugal.
Rereleased in June, 2019 with higher quality paper to match the other books in the Travel Photo Art series.
The softcover edition uses a single-page layout for an affordable price point. The hardcover edition utilizes a beautiful two-page spread with the photo on the righthand page and the title on the left. Either version makes a great gift.
In the Travel Photo Art series, traditional tourism panoramas mix with arthouse aesthetics. These slim, intense productions are your passport to new perspectives on famous places. Peer around corners and discover a unique way to interact with monuments and memorials you thought you knew.
This popular series includes titles that mix text with the pictures. Books like Notre Dame Cathedral: Our Lady of Paris, featuring photos taken months before the 2019 fire, become keepsakes associated with a specific site. Titles like Lidice Lives and Terezin and Theresienstadt are deeply meaningful for families touched by the Holocaust.
