Book Review: Charleston


Charleston: A Keepsake, by Antelo Devereux Jr. is an enjoyable photography book. The city  of Charleston, South Carolina is the primary focus of this book with over 130 interesting and intriguing photographs.

In the Introduction, the Devereux shared, "Charleston was founded in 1670 on land granted to eight proprietors by English King Charles II.... A survivor of two wars, five major fires, several hurricanes, and a devastating earthquake, Charleston flourishes. The city's buildings, houses, gardens, and people exude history, charm, southern grace, and beauty. These photographs are a sampling of the past and present flavor of this wonderful city and its people."

Charleston: A Keepsake is geared towards various ages, from young adults to older generations, especially recommended for those interested in travel photography.


Note: I received this book from NetGalley, which is a program designed for bloggers to write book reviews in exchange for books, yet the opinions expressed in this review are my own.
