Book Bargain

It’s not a $15.00 book, but at $28.00 it is still a bargain. Straight from the pages of the well-loved (and now defunct) House & Garden, The Well Lived Life marked its centennial celebration with photos of interiors and entertaining over the last century.

The Well Lived Life
includes photos from legendary photographers Irving Penn, Horst P. Horst, John Rawlings, Andre Kertesz, Lord Snowdon, Alfred Eisenstaedt, Ezra Stoller and George Hoyningen-Huene.

My guess is that this book will only gain in value in the years to come. I am amazed at the worth of a few similar books in my collection that are now considered collectors items. Of course I could be wrong, but you will still own a beautiful book.
