An Italian Shelf

Copy of IMG_1694

The archive offers us glimpses of past preferences––a shelf of Italian-centric titles taken from a mock palazzo. This is evocative not of false presentation, but of genuine interest in a distant peninsula. Travel books from a across the Mediterranean and Renaissance histories are blended here, but the focus is obvious: inspiration from across the Atlantic. I see this shelf and marvel at the little Italy that has been built around me.
