Ireland: A Luminous Beauty
by Peter Harbison and Leslie Conron Carola

Island light is magical. And none more so than Ireland's. A long-term fascination with Ireland's "island light" -- light that lures our senses with a restless presence--became the inspiration, the heart, for this book, leading book producer Leslie Conron Carola on a search for photographs that captured the natural play of the motion-filled light and shadow so evident across the landscape of this jewel of an island--this Emerald Isle.

Stunning full-color photographs by some of Ireland's finest landscape photographers--including Chris Hill, Carsten Krieger, and George Munday--are presented with concise, authoritative text from long-time friend and collaborator Peter Harbison blending history, myth, and that wondrous Irish sense of place.
