Into the Artistic Heart of Europe: On the Canals of the Netherlands and Belgium, April 2019
by Tom Roach and Lucie Edwards
The beginning of April marks the arrival of spring in the Netherlands and in Belgium. Tulips in the cities and in the fields are already in bloom and, most marvellous of all, the trees are producing baby leaves that quickly grow and turn the two countries a bright green. It is a romantic time of the year.
Both the Netherlands and Flemish Belgium (Northern Belgium, the part they visited) have a lot in common having, at one time, been part and parcel of the Spanish Empire. This book chronicles their trip in pictures and commentary.
