12 Travel Books for Christmas
Today's book recommendation is from me!
Recommended by: AKNickerson  who says it is "my greatest accomplishment this year and one I am proud to share with you."
A Journey into Michelangelo's Rome by Angela K. Nickerson
Summary: "From St. Peter's Basilica to the Capitoline Hill, this unique resource--part biography, part history, and part travel guide--provides an intimate portrait of the relationship between Michelangelo and the city he restored to artistic greatness. Lavishly illustrated and richly informative, this travel companion tells the story of Michelangelo's meteoric rise, his career marked by successive artistic breakthroughs, his tempestuous relations with powerful patrons, and his austere but passionate private life. Providing street maps that allow readers to navigate the city and discover Rome as Michelangelo knew it, each chapter focuses on a particular work that amazed Michelangelo's contemporaries and modern tourists alike."  -- excerpted from BookPassage.com 
So, now your Twitter list continues to grow. And you have a growing list of twelve book suggestions!  Merry merry!



Don't forget...  a fantastic Christmas gift!
