Marquez’s literary world magically revealed by Italian photographer Fausto Giaccone. As Gerald Martin, the most important Márquez’s biographer writes: «I spent almost twenty years of my own life researching a biography of the life and works of Gabriel García Márquez, one of the world’s greatest writers, not only in libraries and archives but along the roads, rivers and seabords of Colombia, taking notes everywhere I went. And meanwhile, quite independently, another European, Fausto Giaccone, was creating a visual equivalent of those experiences, travelling also along the roads, rivers and seaboards of Colombia, taking photographs everywhere he went. And here they are, in this wonderful book. And here am I introducing them to the world.»
