lighthouses of Finland

Lighthouses have lots of admirers around the world: silent sentinels, they are romantic features of their environments, and they come in a wide variety of sizes, shapes and designs.

In Finland the archipelagoes around the coast are considered among the country's most appealing natural features, and the combination with lighthouses makes for some wonderful photos.

This large format all-colour coffee-table style book is volume 1 of an intended 6 volumes(!) covering Finnish lighthouses. As well as the towers and their coastal/island environments, the book profiles the lives of those involved with and around the lighthouses with sidebars. The text is in Finnish, English and Swedish.
