An enchanting tour of the history and culture of Venice.

A Venetian Bestiary is a celebration in words and pictures of a 'mighty menagerie of fact and fantasy': the animals of Venice, from its ubiquitous cats and barge dogs to the Golden Stallions and Winged Lion of St Mark. Never has Jan Morris written more enchantingly than in this delightful tribute to the birds and beasts of her favourite city.

Author bio:

Jan Morris was born in 1926 of a Welsh father and an English mother, and when she is not travelling she lives with her partner Elizabeth Morris in the top left-hand corner of Wales, between the mountains and the sea.

She is also the author of six books about cities and countries, two autobiographical books, several volumes of collected travel essays, the unclassifiable Trieste and the Meaning of Nowhere.
