Les Offices de Tourisme de La Barbade - Barbados Tourist Offices
Cette ancienne colonie anglaise des Petites Antilles est superbement ignorée par les visiteurs français… Au large des Grenadines, cette grande île est restée plutôt british et ses habitants, les Bajans, cultivent un art de vivre à la fois sophistiqué et bon enfant.

"The small island of Barbados, "the Rock" as it is affectionately called by those who cling to it... has long been recognized as a peculiar place that defies, if not description, at least explanation." So begins Peter Laurie's introduction to the work of Barbados's leading photographer, Mike Toy. Here his photos are collected for the first time, providing a fascinating and visually stunning portrait of the island and its people. Indeed, a real attempt is made to describe and explain some of the mysteries of this proud nation as well as shedding light on the future of what is undoubtedly the Caribbean's leading tourist destination. It depicts all the subtleties and complexities of a country inextricably linked to its past-a love of cricket being just one example-and how its people have successfully forged a unique Barbadian cultural identity loved all over the world. In this island portrait comprising over 160 images, Mike Toy takes us on a in-depth tour highlighting not only the major tourist destinations and sights but also revealing their cultural, historical, and artistic significance. Above all, he provides an intimate portrait of the Bajan people themselves-close up-leading their every day lives and clinging determinedly to their beloved "Rock." Peter Laurie is a retired career diplomat and former ambassador of Barbados to the United States. He is the author of several books including two illustrated children's stories and The Barbadian Rum Shop. He co-authored The Glory Days-25 Great West Indian Cricketers also published by Macmillan Caribbean. He lives in Barbados.
This is an exciting and beautifully illustrated book on the architectural treasures of Barbados. In an easy and lively style the author takes the reader on a fascinating journey of discovery, from the humble slave hut to magnificent plantation houses; from the unique chattel house to the neo-gothic Parliament buildings in Bridgetown. When makes this book so attractive is not only the breadth and depth of Henry Fraser's intimate knowledge of the island and its buildings but his profound understanding of the history of each place. With enthusiasm, passion and a delightful sense of humour, the author brings to life the places he visits, be it a church, a villa, a hut, a hotel, a street or some official building. At the same time he introduces many characters from the past, both the colourful innkeeper and the grand statesman. As the President of the Barbados National Trust, Henry Fraser not only strives to preserve Barbados' architectural heritage but also challenges his contemporaries to build a Barbados worthy of its past. This book is more than a guide to the architectural delights of Barbados; it will appeal equally to those who wish to see and appreciate the buildings "off the beaten track", and those who simply want to understand better the origins and the history of this beautiful island.
