One of the most frequent occasions for gift giving is a token of thanks for hospitality received. Flowers or a bottle of wine are the commonest tokens, but for those who wish variety this book is a splendid alternative. It was written and designed with this specific intention, and speaks of various aspects of hospitality--"the atmosphere, conversation, shared laughter, and so on. Welleran Poltarnees has the gift for finding the words and images for universal situations, and that gift has never been more fully present than in this volume. The illustrations for every page are by the French painter Henri Le Sidaner. His talent is to show homes that radiate warmth and beauty. People are never shown which gives the images a timeless applicability. We think this is the ideal hospitality gift, being both pertinent and visually attractive.Poltarnees, Welleran is the author of 'Thank You for Your Hospitality' with ISBN 9781595830067 and ISBN 1595830065.
