CELEBRATING 30 YEARS
Published at the right time of the year to be considered an important Christmas present, this book commemorates the series of superb photographic books that, with the publication of Malta 360º in 1989, lead to the creation of a collection of Melitensia books. It is remarkable book, a continuation of the 360º series, presenting new and previously unseen photographs alongside others drawn from the 21 titles that make up the unique set. With panoramic images, it is both a record and a comparison of the changes to the islands’ vistas that have taken place gradually over the last three decades. Some are subtle, some less so.
The book is a worthy successor to The City of Valletta 360° published in 2017 that created an outstanding peak in the catalogue of Miranda publications as it marked Valletta’s nomination as a World Heritage Site and European Capital of Culture 2018.
With Enrico Formica’s unparalleled photographs, every important facet of Malta’s famed heritage is here – from prehistoric times to the days of the knights of the Order to St John and the British garrison, as well as
the spectacular churches and cathedrals that represent the faces of religious life. Here too are impressive examples of Baroque architecture, countryside landscapes, rugged coastlines and the spirit of local life that makes the islands so attractively distinctive.
This is a book that highlights the key points of Maltese heritage through remarkable photography.
