Beacons of the Seas

This wonderful coffee table-style book shines the spotlight on some 150 lighthouses. Broken into regional chapters, the reader is taken on a journey around the world. From the Montauk Point Lighthouse on Long Island, New York, to Urk Lighthouse in Ijsselmeer in the Netherlands, to Wicklow Head Lighthouse in County Wicklow, Ireland to Portland Bill Lighthouse in Dorset, England. The book features lighthouses in all weathers from storms to tranquil waters to those that have become ice palaces. From working lighthouses to eerie, long abandoned ones, from those in beautiful locations to those with a darker history, such as the lighthouse in Alcatraz Island. With 150 colour photographs and captions explaining the location, construction and story of each entry, Lighthouses is a fascinating visual exploration of some of the most remote and beautiful places on Earth. Very highly recommended.
