Lighthouses of Europe
£25.00

by Thomas Ebelt
Fascinating text about the history and construction of European lighthouses.

by Thomas Ebelt

With many of Europe’s countries bordering a sea, the need for lighthouses has spanned much of the continent for centuries. Lighthouses hold a perennial fascination for many of us – an indicator of danger, a beacon of the sea, laced with history and romance and a magnet for coastal walkers and visitors. Photographer Thomas Ebelt captures beautiful imagery of the most stunning lighthouses for a lavish calendar, but on his journeys along Europe’s coasts he found enough outstanding structures and dramatic landscapes to fill a calendar every year for a decade or more. This book is a collection of his finest photographs, from Poland and Estonia, via Iceland, around Scotland and England, and towards Malta and Sicily. Each lighthouse is accompanied by fascinating text about their history and construction. Specifications boxes provide information on position, identification features, height of the tower, height of the light, range and year of construction. 176 pages.
