Along the Via Appia: Rome's Ancient Appian Way (Travel Photo Art #23) (Paperback)
Rome's Via Appia, the Appian Way, takes travelers back to 312 BC.
Originally built as a military route, the Via Appia launched an expansion that spurred the saying, "all roads lead to Rome." The road wends pasts the churches, tombs, catacombs and other monuments that dot the landscape. The view changes with the seasons, exploding in spring with purple wisteria and verdant year-round with tall cypress trees.
Pass through Rome's ancient wall and wander along this ancient road with the full-color photos in Along the Via Appia: Rome's Ancient Appian Way (a Travel Photo Art book).
In the Travel Photo Art series, traditional tourism panoramas mix with arthouse aesthetics. These slim, passport sized 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.
