La Serenissima is a 13 page ebook by Ian Macilwain. it is a portrait of Venice in January 2013 in photographs and poems. It is available on the Apple bookstore at £1.49 The author has tried to distil the very essence of his experience of Venice into a very limited space. The photographs were inspired by the paintings of James McNeil Whistler which he made during 1879 while attempting to repay debts accumulated during a court action against John Ruskin which he lost. Many of these are on show at the Hunterian gallery in Glasgow to which he donated many of his works.
