Whipped Cream Architecture

whipped creamIt might sound like an odd title, but once you read the first few paragraphs it makes perfect sense.

Whipped cream is a book of photography with a few pages of information about the origins of the white painted stone ‘wigs’ that grace the gables of the grachtenpanden (canal houses) in Amsterdam.

If the subject matter floats your boat and you are curious about, or interested in the history of Holland_Ž“s distinct architectural style then this is likely to appeal.

Whipped cream is a nicely presented glossy picture book without being ostentatious, and a perfectly respectable addition to any Dutch coffee table collection.
