HOMES OF THE GREAT - Claude Arthaud
Genteel coffee-table material, this book is essentially a collection of photos of the past residences along with short biographies/anecdotes of famous select European artists (literary, musical, painting, etc.) and philosophers throughout of the past 400-500 years. It is a charming and comforting book to peruse over a glass of your favorite drink, be it coffee or something stronger; the photos are well done and the descriptions are interesting and well-written.
