Click to preview The Bee's Tour of Gouda Buzzing Through Vinita's Lens pocket and trade book

Curious to know a little of the history that shaped the Dutch world you find yourself visiting? Persephone Abbott and Vinita Salomé have used the base of the small city of Gouda to explore Dutch history and culture. This slender book with witty commentary and clever visuals is presented by two ex-pats and can help the foreigner, visitor or new resident, begin to grasp the context of Dutch mentality and culture. As a guide book to Gouda, it prepares the day tourist to be able to appreciate the historical stained glass windows in the St. John’s Church, however if churches aren’t your thing, there are other options given. This book is a unique collaboration between three artists, writer Persephone Abbott, photographer Vinita Salomé and internationally exhibited quilt artist Kathy Nida who provided the maps and illustrations.

Pity!! First time I've seen this!! (I think!!! Am worried that Alzheimers is hereditary!) Born in Gouda. Left when I was 12 in 1956 to live mainly in Sydney, the rest of my life. This book intrigues me. But you know how carefully we Dutch spend our money. Must have another good look (first).
