Assouline Greek Islands hardcover book showcases the endless sparkling waters of Greece and the unparalleled Greek warmth and hospitality that awaits visitors to the Aegean islands. Each island has a unique spirit and mythology. From Patmos (a favorite of the Aga Khan) to Hydra (the place that fascinated Henry Miller, Leonard Cohen and Sophia Loren), the islands are full of enticing history, tradition and adventure. Several films have been shot over the decades, including Dolphin Boy on Hydra (1957), Giant Blue on Amorgos (1988) and Santorini's Sisterhood of Traveling Pants (2005). Fountains of inspiration for thousands of years, ancient ruins, cliffside monasteries and volcanic rims are all must-see attractions.
The author and photographer set out on their own odyssey aboard a traditional Greek sailing ship and set out to capture the serene atmosphere, typical characters and breathtaking architecture of these gems of the Aegean. A spectacular journey is recreated in the pages of the Greek Isles.
