About

“Villas of the Veneto”. New York: Harry N. Abrams, Inc., Publishers, 1988. First English edition hardcover with dust jacket. 199 pp. A beautiful coffee table book on the villas of the Veneto. The book is illustrated with 150 full-page color photos by architectural photographer Reinhart Wolf. The Italian villa reached its peak in the 16th century with Andrea Palladio's work in the Veneto. The book showcases his work with thirty villa examples including exteriors, interior details of frescos and the villa's elaborate gardens.
