Ionian Sea Charts

Ionian Sea Charts

Fagottobooks editions with the permission of the Hydrographic Service of Hellenic Navy successfully completed an admittedly hard task: The publication of a completely up to date double-sided map of the Ionian sea region.

The first side depicts the XE21 map by the HSHN, originally printed in 2002, including all the vital mariner information up to June 2012. The region, being reproduced at 1:250.000, scale includes all the Diapontia islands north of Corfu all the way down to Zakynthos. The highly sophisticated design of the map offers unmatchable clarity and enhanced information detail.

On the second side of the map we can see the Inland Sea, on a 1:95000 scale which includes Lefkada and the small islands as well as the Northern part of Kefalonia and Ithaki.

The complete edition is supplemented with accurate representation of the following ports: Paliokastritsa Corfu, Gaios Paxoi, Lakka Paxoi, Syvota Thesprotia, Lefkada's canal, Vathy Meganisi, Kalamos, Vathy Ithaki, Kioni Ithaki, Fiskardo Kefalonia, Aghia Evfimia Kefalonia. Additionally aerial view of the Lefkada canal on a 1:20.000 scale, which includes all the available nautical information, and a detailed part of Lefkada canal up to Preveza significantly adds to the usefulness of the map.

All the existing maritime dangerous areas and hazards are strongly marked.

The map is printed on waterproof Polyart paper which is highly resistant to refolding. The fine selection and illustration of the Ionian sea chart map makes it an ideal tool for mariners, where in most cases you would need to purchase 2 or even 3 maps for the whole area.

Lefkada A journey in time

Lefkada A journey in time

Fritz Berger
“I carry my memories of Lefkas inside me as images. They are images full of light and shade, shapes and colour, full of people, flowers, trees, hills and the sea. I see the sorrowful eyes of women in smart local dress, I see a café full of men playing backgammon, I taste the aromatic homemade bread of Akrivis and the olives served with it, the spicy cheese, I hear the donkeys, the goats, the sheep, the ceaseless trill of the cicadas everywhere. They are images which remain or which arise only for a short while. Then houses appear which have been damaged by the earthquake, a cold night and the old lady, Arsenia sat alone in front of the fire.”

Wilhelm Dörpfeld's Lefkada 1891-1913

Wilhelm Dörpfeld's Lefkada 1891-1913

N. Thermos
Today, about a hundred years after they were taken, one is struck by these photographs\' high standard of artistic quality and accuracy of detail. Dorpfeld nearly always featured human figures in them, to give a better impression of dimensions and proportions.
They are therefore, whether consciously or accidentally, contributions to the technique of illustration, which became a tradition of popularity, utilizing the theme of vestiges of antiquity in art, since all the photographs reflect the romantic concept of communion between mankind and nature, on a background with the grandeur of ancient ruins, mute testimony to our civilization brought to light by the archaeologist's pickaxe.

Authentic Greek Cooking

Authentic Greek Cooking

Evie Voutsina

"The dishes of Greek cookery, in particular those that constitute its identity, are largely unknown to the broader public. This is not the book in which to find the recipes usually contained in such publications, such as moussaka, stuffed vegetables or horiatiki salad, mainly because they are already well known and almost identified with a tourist¢s perception of Greek cuisine.From the vast wealth of recipes I have recorded in the systematic research I have been conducting over the past fourteen years all over the country, I selected (with great difficulty, I have to admit) those presented in this book for their quality of taste as well as for what I consider to be their representativeness of the identity of Greek food. I call them authentic because they are not my own recipes, they were not concocted by myself and are transcribed exactly as I wrote them down. Wherever I have added something it is specifically mentioned in the introduction to the recipe. I have tried and tested them, cooking them over and over again, so that I am sure you will have no difficulty in making them."
