The Book


This book is the second installment of Edward’s illustrated travels, where, ever the gentleman, he journeys through the heart of Tuscany enjoying all aspects of that privileged region.
Italy has a long and intimate relationship with art. Some of the greatest artists in history hail from Italy and their work can been seen in every part of Italian life, from its majestic churches to virtuoso architecture. The hill towns of the Val d’Orcia, and the world famous cities of Florence and Siena, are the very epitome of this heady cultural mix.
