2012 Vienna celebrates Gustav Klimt's 150th birthday

We have a huge selection of novels that bring Vienna to life through words, and especially turn of the century Vienna - the height of café society, grand Fin de Siècle architecture and a lively "Wiener Secession" artistic community. To celebrate the 150th birthday of Gustav Klimt in 2012, we have chosen just one of our many books. This novel imagines the life between Gustav Klimt and Emilie Flöge, who was reputed to be his model for his painting “The Kiss”.  Perhaps over a good cup of coffee, a Verlängerter  (which to you and me is an Americano), get to know 19th century Vienna via excellent prose.
