The Romance of the Grand Tour will be launched at Singapore Art Museum on 15 April 2015
STEAMSHIPS, GRAND HOTELS AND PORT CITIES IN SOUTH EAST ASIA
Retracing the journey of those grand tourists of the ‘20s, the book takes today’s traveller through 12 fabled port cities in what was then known as the East Indies. Setting sail from Rangoon (Yangon), we visit Penang, Malacca, Singapore, Batavia (Jakarta), Surabaya, Bangkok, Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City), Phnom Penh, Hanoi and Manila before disembarking at Hong Kong harbour.
Pleased to share some media clippings and some photographs of the very successful launch of THE NEW SRI LANKAN HOUSE Book by Robert Powell.
The Sunday Times Sri Lanka Plus
THE NEW SRI LANKAN HOUSE charts the development of private houses in the 21st century in a variety of locations around the island. Most are the work of Sri Lankan architects, many of whom are indebted to the influence of the island’s most creative mind, Geoffrey Bawa.
There’ll be a book launch in Colombo, if you happen to be there you are invited!
