Famed for its architecture, culture and natural beauty, Corfu greets millions of tourists each year. Having been left to its own laidback lifestyle after 500 years of Venetian, French and British occupation, the island is now as popular with holiday makers as it once was with invaders. The old town is an especially alluring blend of venetian architecture, Mediterranean charm and even the occasional cricket pitch, all uniquely resistant to the intrusions of modernity. Immaculately illustrated, Old Corfu opens the rusty gate to an island experience like no other. By focalising the flaking paint on garage doors, pavements split by the heat, or olive trees stooped and swaying as if drunk, each page is infused with the same unspoilt appeal as Corfu itself. More than a testament to the allure of a balmy, Mediterranean paradise, this is a true photographic masterclass, inviting us to see the attractiveness in old age, and the beauty in life’s imperfections. SELLING POINTS: . Stunning photographs of Corfu . Perfect for travellers, photographers and artists . A unique study, revealing the hidden side of a popular Mediterranean paradise . A true photographic masterclass
