"Vogue s Book of Houses, Gardens, People" (1968) was a landmark publication among decorating books, and it chronicles an important chapter in the history of "Vogue." "Vogue" s Horst P. Horst, a leading fashion photographer of his time, developed an intense interest in seeing the world s great homes and meeting their owners; beginning in the early 1960s, he journeyed in an elite world that would soon be lost. With accompanying lyrical essays about homes and their occupants by the famed writer Valentine Lawford (Horst s partner in work and life), the book is a virtual who s who of society, politics, and the arts in the mid-20th century. "Around That Time" showcases much of the material featured in the original book, plus never-before-seen photographs from those homes as well as images from additional homes Horst shot well into the 1980s. This book introduces this work to a new generation of design, decorating, and visual art professionals, academics, and enthusiasts."

Mona Hajj is a master of interior design. Her choices of colors, fabrics, and furnishings and her marvelous sense of scale transform even the most mundane of rooms into a magical kingdom. —Allan Greenberg For the last two decades, Mona Hajj has been crafting interiors that combine a global vision with an American emphasis on elegance, comfort, and simplicity. Hajj's body of work is grounded in classicism yet influenced by the contemporary; her international upbringing—she was born in Africa and educated in Europe, Lebanon, and the United States—is evidenced in exceptional rugs, antiques, and fixtures. Interior Visions showcases Hajj's distinct and distinctly original aesthetic voice. Beautifully photographed projects—from a beach house in Delaware to a John Russell Pope–designed house in Baltimore, from an apartment in New York City to the Embassy of Luxembourg in Washington, D.C.—display a thoughtful treatment of architecture, color, and lighting, as well as an eye for the defining detail. Among the myriad culturally and historically diverse adornments are Persian rugs, Flemish tapestries, Japanese screens, Italian chandeliers, and Chinese chargers. Finally, two residences presented in great detail—the author's own apartment in a historic Baltimore building and an expansive horse farm in Kentucky—demonstrate a vision that is at once specific and inclusive, personal and grand, intimate and sumptuous. Interior design is all about how things feel instinctively, the special magic that flourishes when different elements are joined together. —Mona Hajj

From British interior designer Nicholas Haslam, a dazzling and witty account of a frenetic and full life—from the 1940s to the present—in Europe and America, in a crowd of friends and acquaintances that includes virtually all of the cultural icons of our time. Haslam has found himself at the center of some of the most interesting circles wherever he is—at parties, opening nights, royal weddings. In London in the late 1950s he crossed paths—and more—with Cecil Beaton, Francis Bacon, Diana Cooper, Greta Garbo, Lucian Freud, David Hockney, David Bailey, and Noël Coward. A time living in the still unspoiled south of France was an education in everything from the work of Buñuel to the style of toreros like Dominguín and Ordóñez. In Paris he met Jean Cocteau and Janet Flanner, and, in Saint-Tropez, danced with Brigitte Bardot. In the 1960s, in New York, he encountered Dorothy Parker, Cole Porter, Andy Warhol, Jack Kennedy, Joan Didion, and Marilyn Monroe while working in the art department at Vogue and later as art director, following Henry Wolf, at Huntington Hartford’s Show magazine. After Show, Haslam moved to a ranch in Arizona to raise Arabian horses—Truman Capote and John Richardson, among others, came to stay—and he began designing and commuting to Los Angeles to decorate for the stars. Back in England in the 1980s, he worked on David Bailey’s Ritz magazine, attended the wedding of his cousin Diana Spencer, and designed for everyone from the financier James Goldsmith to rock star Bryan Ferry. Redeeming Features is about much more than documenting a life among the celebrated and the eccentric: it is a vivid, at times humorous and moving portrait of a way of life that has all but disappeared. Haslam has an exacting eye for the telling detail and his story is a compelling and wholly fascinating document of our times. From the Hardcover edition.

Published to accompany a headline exhibition at the V&Amp;A, this book is the definitive celebration of the extraordinary photographic career of Horst P. Horst (1906-99). One of Vogue's most prolific and creative contributors, Horst worked in Paris and New York, photographing fashions by leading designers and making portraits of the century's stars. His important work made outside the realms of fashion photography is also included here. Horst excelled at nude studies and still-life photography, fusing Hellenic and Surrealist motifs and drawing inspiration from artists such as Salvador Dali. He captured the exquisite simplicity of natural forms - plants, shells and stones - transforming them into abstract kaleidoscopic collages. His little-known travel photographs reveal his fascination with ancient cultures, landscapes and architecture and, in later years, Horst photographed some of the world's most beautiful homes for Vogue and House & Garden. His work epitomizes the interconnections between art, fashion and high society. Today, Horst's photographs continue to inspire art directors and photographers, and he ranks alongside Irving Penn and Richard Avedon as one of the great masters of twentieth-century photography.

Vince Camuto is an accomplished creator of lifestyle products and brands that are known the world over. The Italian-American shoe designer spent the better portion of his career under the fashion radar. From humble beginnings in Manhattan's East Village, he quietly made a name for himself by co-founding Nine West and, soon after, slowly acquired footwear licenses for BCBG, Max Azria, and BCBGirls, all before launching his own namesake brand in 2005. The following year, he partnered with Tory Burch to create the Reva ballet flat, the shoe that effectively launched her career. The book is also an ode to the homes that have become his passion, featuring new photographs: Chateau Ridge, in Greenwich, Connecticut; Villa Maria, in Water Mill, New York; and Wooldon Manor, in Southampton, New York. Each home is stunningly decorated with gorgeous works of art and antiques collected by Camuto and his wife Louise. Camuto traces his career from the early days at I. Magnin to becoming founder and creative director of Nine West to establishing The Camuto Group in 2001, which offers products in 31 categories under more than 10 brands, including Vince Camuto and VC Signature. The book has a foreword by Tommy Hilfiger, who has known Camuto for 25 years. .
