Among many decorating books, 'Vogue's Book of Houses, Gardens, People' from 1968 was a landmark publication showcasing an important chapter in Vogue's history. Vogue's very own Horst P. Horst was one of the world's top fashion photographers of his time. In the early 1960's, he developed a deep and intense love in seeing the world's most beautiful homes and meeting their owners. 'Around That Time' features stunning imagery by Horst P. Horst paralleled with lyrical essays about homes and their occupants by his work and life partner Valentine Lawford.
This book showcases politics, society, and the arts in the mid-20th century. This book highlights some of the material shown in the original book and a series of never-before-seen photographs from those same homes. Around That Time also showcases a new collection of homes that Horst shot well into the late 1980's. This new publication incorporates a new generation of design, decorating, and visual art professionals, academics, and enthusiasts.
