This volume evokes the enchantment of the superb canals of Amsterdam, The beauty of Amsterdam has found graphic expression in the drawings of the artist Willem Hofker. He joins the ranks of notable predeces-sors such as Fouquet, Gerrit Lamberts, and Wenkebach. Ton Koot - an authoritative and prolific writer about Amsterdam - was the indicated author to provide the commentary.
The thread running through the book is the series of seedy, dilapidated, and derelict houses which have been taken in hand in recent years by talented and dedicated architects. They are restoring these houses to their former glory in a city that once knew countless highlights, when miles of gracious houses were ranged along the canals in serried harmonious ranks, but with an infinite variety in their gay gable-tops.
A feast for the eyes and delightful to live in. Delightful also to all who peruse this book and savour there the enchantment of the renascent beauty on the canals of Amsterdam.
