Why We Love This

Notestein, Lilian. Hill Towns of Italy.London: Hutchinson, 1963. First UK edition. With many detailed drawings by David Gentleman, who also painted the jacket design, this is a beautiful, rather dated tour of hill fortresses in Tuscany, Umbria and as far south as Sicily. 1963 seems marvelously old-fashioned and all the more charming for that. With a touch of foxing to edges and previous owner's name. Jacket is bright but with slight dirt marks to back.
