Very Bangkok: In the Cities of Senses by Philip Cornwel-Smith (2020)


( reviewed by The Isaan Record )

The very breadth of Very Bangkok provides a comprehensive and fresh take on the capital and its role within the country.

Philip Cornwel-Smith has in Very Bangkok created a veritable masterpiece of the genre.

Very Bangkok is a sophisticated treatment that gives ultimate respect to the reader.

As much as a book can be, it is an assault on the eyes and can not be imagined without the adept use of color. The book is necessarily a hardback because it assumes correctly that a reader will be fingering through its pages again and again. Given the book’s quality in content and layout, 995 baht is a steal.
