/ NEW REVIEW: Sicily and Alpine Ice Guidebooks
Italian publishing company Verstante Sud continue to churn out high quality guidebooks at a steady pace, to both Italy and further a field. The latest pair of books to flop onto my doormat form an interesting juxtaposition, Di Roccia, di Sole (Rock- Sun, Rock Climbing in Sicily) and Alpine Ice – the 600 best ice falls in the Alps. Both are slick products, with loads of topos, stacks of great action pics and plenty of background information.
