This book is packed with photographs of vintage interiors by the greats: Baldwin(Billy), Sister(Mrs. Henry Parish II), George Stacey, and Mr. Michael Taylor to name a few. Though several of the shots are in black and white, enough are in color to make it worth the purchse. Though I am a visual person, I do like that each designer has written an introduction to the illustrations of their work. A definite treasure for anyone interested in the history of decorating or society.
