VOGUE'S BOOK OF HOUSES, GARDENS, PEOPLE Photographed by Horst, Text by Valentine Lawford, Foreword by Diana Vreeland, 1963.
"This book provides an opportunity to see how a number of well-known and less well-known people live during their private hours, among the possessions they love and in the surroundings thay have planned or improved or cultivated... It is not only for those interested in architecture and art, furniture and objects, and houses and gardens in general, but also for anyone curious about the personalities and habits of some of the most attractive and creative people of our time." The jacket of this book is just being modest. This volume is a classic and with good reason, it transports you fabled and far-flung places such as Pucci's Florentine palazzo, Doris Duke's Moorish home in Hawaii and Lord and Lady Eliot's pre-Conquest cathedral.
