Book Excerpt : "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."
