      Das Werk besteht aus zwei Bänden in einem soliden Pappschuber , wiegt etwas über 4 kg. und beansprucht, ein Gesamtkatalog der Radierungen von Giovanni B. Piranesi zu sein. Die Einführung von Luigi Ficacci in Englisch, Deutsch und Französisch ist jeweils circa acht Seiten lang. Der Katalog ist in etwa dreißig Abschnitte eingeteilt, je nach dem Typ der gezeigten Werke. So sind etwa die „Carceri“ im ersten Band aufgeführt unter der Bezeichnung „Fanciful images of prisons“ , die „Ve [...]

      Ich habe meiner Mutter eine Piranesi Radierung von San Angelo in Rom geschenkt weil ich in San Angelo, Texas geboren bin. Diese komplette Übersicht über alle seiner Werke ist faszinierend und im hervorragenden Druck wiedergegeben. Man kann sich ewig mit dem Buch beschäftigen.

      I'm reviewing mostly in response to the single, overly low two-star review already here. This is a nice set, period.I went to the library to compare the $300-400 Wilton-Ely version recommended in the previous review. I must say I was expecting a lot more when considering the enormous price tag. In general, I would say all the images are similarly sized in both editions and the reproduction quality seemed very close if not the same. The Wilton-Ely has nice book cloth and the paper is nicer, y [...]

      I saw a Piranesi sketch print framed in a local restaurant ("A Group of Columns") and I was very taken with the level of detail in the "imagined architecture" of super-elaborate and complex, ridiculously-oversied, buildings that were never built , but that existed only in the mind of this very talented sketch artist / draftsman / architect / dreamer who lived in the 1700's.This is a hardcover two-book-set that comes in a slipcase that holds the two volumes together. It is printed on very high-qu [...]

      ***update July 2015***I just went to the used bookstore and saw the Wilton-Ely edition, which sells here for $300. The plates are no better, and in fact blurrierand darker than the Ficacci! Therefore this must be THE definitive volume of Piranesi plates!I purchased this based on the reviewer who claimed to have compared this with the much more expensive Wilton-Ely edition ($300) who said he could barely tell the difference between the plates. Since I had a small Taschen book, and did not like h [...]

      This is a gorgeous two-volume edition from those kinks, over at Tauschen, who publish everything from the finest art books, to 10-kilo coffee table books, documenting Japanese amputee trannie-hookers from Hokkaido; and looks to be a trade edition of a Piranesi collection that I saw overseas, costing several hundred dollars.It's a real bargain at 40.00 or so; and for those unfamiliar with the artist, Horace Walpole says it all, “Piranesi was as savage as Salvator Rosa, fierce as Michelangelo, a [...]
