Churches of Attica

£34.99

Product description

Throughout its long history, Attica has been a favoured place for the arts. Its people have always responded to the dramatic structure of its landscape and to the clarity of its atmosphere and colouring. For the monuments they have left are suffused with the same qualities, found not only in proud public buildings but in humble vernacular structures as well; not only in those of the great epochs of Greek history, but also through the dark days of Roman, Frankish and Turkish rule.

This book is not concerned with the major examples of the several periods of Attic church-building. Most of these are rather well known. The purpose is rather to introduce some which have escaped attention, most of them small and many of them erected or restored under Turkish rule.

The book is a mixture of text, architectural plans and photography, mixing external and internal shots with a focus on wall paintings. All of the photography is in black and white.

Hard back book with dust jacket. The dust jacket shows signs of wear with marks, rubbing and small tears around the edges. There is a bookseller's labels inside the front cover (pictured). The binding is a little loose in places and there are some marks on the page edges. The pages are slightly yellowed, but otherwise the pages are in very good condition with no signs of damage or annotations.

Originally published in Greek, this edition in English.
