There are some things you just can’t get online. A thick book you can thumb through and read at your leisure, rich in images and history of the architecture and times that helped create The Bahamas we know, for instance.

This week, just such a book, Island Follies, Romantic Homes of The Bahamas, a tribute to the whimsical and romantic island escapes and some of Nassau’s most celebrated buildings, attracted a diverse audience for a book-signing event.

Co-author Tanya Melich Crone (seated) toiled for more than three years, visiting dozens of homes and buildings her late father, the famed Czech-born architect Henry Melich, designed.

The first in a series of limited book signings was hosted by Oasis, the tony furniture and home décor store in Sandyport.

Below, a younger generation is just as fascinated – that’s top-performing real estate professionals CJ and Vanessa Ansell getting their book signed while Breanne and Heath Pritchard wait their turn.
