Description


The Hamptons have long been a haven for the world's elite. Its breathtaking vistas inspired Walt Whitman and Winslow Homer; its social forebears include the likes of Gerald and Sara Murphy entertaining greats such as Leger and Fitzgerald; Kurt Vonnegut, Jackson Pollock, and Andy Warhol all found inspiration on America's Riviera. Spectacular estates from the Gilded Age's business barons, designed by legendary architects such as Stanford White, rival the sprawling mansions of today's hedge fund managers and the myriad boldface names attracted to this beachfront strip on Long Island each summer season. The Big Book of the Hamptons celebrates the mystique and romance of one of the most iconic and extravagant neighborhoods in the world, exploring the architecture and gardens of these secluded retreats, brought to life with amazing imagery in a deluxe volume.
