An exquisite hardbound collection of 130 black and white photographs made over the past thirteen years. The photographs capture Mr. Spinder’s unique view, a turn-of-the-century sense of history, and the multitude of architectural styles in Budapest from neo-Classic facades and Gothic spires to turrets and towers of medieval castles. A selection of images is also captured in iridescent, twilight color. The black and white reproductions are sepia-toned to render the historic feel of the city's 'Golden Age'. Each photo is brought to life with personally written stories about making the photograph and about Budapest/Hungarian history. A retrospective of Stephen's photographs since 1991, it has become a visual document of Budapest's return to its former glory on the world stage.

Spinder, first visted Hungary in 1991 because of his interest in folk music and dancing. "Then, everyone was trying to get out of Eastern Europe and I was going in,"
He soon had a full-blown love affair with the region, and in 1995, moved to Budapest, where he has visited ever since. My first oppportunity to meet Stephen was when he was looking for a printing house to publish his first Hungarian moustache calander.From the Author:
Inspiration for this book project came when I first travelled to Eastern Europe to chase Hungarian folk dancing. I had always wanted to publish a book of my work. It never became more of a reality than when I arrived in the city and began to develop a network of friends, colleagues and professionals who have supported me from the beginning. I would like to thank so many people, who have, either directly or indirectly, been the true architects of this long-incubating publication: without their unselfish giving, relentless energy, and eternal patience in dealing with me, the artist, it could never have happened. To them I am greatly indebted.
