This year marks the 400th anniversary of the Romanov dynasty, and the world's fascination with Russia’s royal family and the lost world of Tsarist Russia has only increased. Now a new book, Twilight of the Romanovs: A Photographic Odyssey Across Imperial Russia, by historians Philipp Blom and Veronica Buckley, features the vast panorama of the final configuration of the Russian empire before and at the time of the Bolshevik Revolution. The aim of its authors, was to find photos that had never been published before. The arresting photos taken between 1855 to 1918, were selected from "thousands and thousands" according to the authors, with some of the best images published in colour.
Large hard cover with 248 pages, 360 photographs, 114 in full colour.
